Stop Loan Sharks - A Training Session

 A loan shark is someone who lends money as a business without the appropriate licence required by the Office of Fair Trading.  They rarely give any paperwork and if repayments are missed they often use violence and intimidation to get their money back.  An England, dedicated team is cracking down on loan sharks and we’d like to tell you more.

The training aims to give front line staff more in-depth information about the project background, key things to look out for as a frontline worker, the relevance of loan sharks for your organisation and a better understanding of information and intelligence.  We will also show you the impact that loan sharks have on victims and communities. 

The training will include a presentation, along with workshops and group work. 

Please RSVP by 5th March – places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  There are 15 -20 places available and if there is high demand, don’t worry, we will run the same training again!
