Stop Loan Sharks Community Funding 2016

The England Illegal Money Lending Team has funding available for groups that want to raise awareness of the issues of illegal money lending. The money available has come from the proceeds of crime taken from convicted illegal money lenders. Illegal Money Lenders more commonly known as Loan Sharks, lend money without having the correct permissions from the Financial Conduct Authority.

When you struggle to make repayments they may use violence, threats and intimidation, to ensure you keep paying them.
