The annual CIVEA conference is an opportunity for members to network and offer thought leadership on common challenges and obstacles.

Speakers at the event will include Lee Sharp (Head of Private Sector Engagement, Cabinet Office), Tessa Wearing (Policy Manager, Civil Enforcement, Ministry of Justice), Kevin Shaw (Senior Creditor Strategy Manager, Money and Pensions Service) and Catherine Brown, the newly announced Chair of the Enforcement Conduct Board (ECB).

CIVEA Chief Executive Officer, Russell Hamblin-Boone, said: “Congratulations to everyone that has been shortlisted for the inaugural CIVEA Awards. Our judges were very impressed by the standard of entries in each category and the variety of forward-thinking, market-leading and superior service standards that were highlighted. Events like our conference and awards dinner are designed to enhance networking opportunities and promote the sharing of best practices for the benefit of the civil enforcement profession and local communities. We cannot wait for the awards night and to reveal the winners.”



CIVEA is the principal trade association representing civil enforcement agencies employing around 2000 certificated enforcement agents that operate in England and Wales. CIVEA represents 40 companies that make up over 95% of the entire enforcement industry.

CIVEA’s members work to enforce civil debt on behalf of local authorities and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) including council tax, business rates, parking fines, magistrates’ court fines, employment tribunal awards, child support payments, B2B and commercial rent arrears. This amounts to over half a billion pounds of unpaid taxes and fines recovered each year at no cost to the public bodies themselves. Each year CIVEA members receive over 3.5 million warrants and court orders.
