Event description

Description

A loan shark is someone who lends money, they rarely give any paperwork and if repayments are missed they often use violence and intimidation to get their money back.

Faced with this problem would you or your staff know what to do? A national, dedicated team is cracking down on loan sharks and we’d like to tell you more.

There are a number of events taking place over the week including free training sessions for professionals and members of the community.

Who is the professionals training aimed at?

Community safety/police teams – loan sharks have a direct impact on crime and disorder and victims have been known to be forced into criminal activity to repay debts.

Housing and advice agencies – loan sharks create a climate of fear and intimidation, often resulting in victims being unable to pay their rent and in some cases facing homelessness.

Customer service/front line staff – loan sharks prey on the most vulnerable in society, controlling their finances and causing them to access services more often.

Health and well- being teams – loan sharks place severe pressure on their victims to repay, as a result this can impact on their physical and mental health.
