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.
The free training will give you 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 which will be your client
group. Loan sharks also impact upon crime and disorder.
This training will benefit staff who have an involvement with households' finances to

aimed at Advice, arrears collection teams, customer service staff,
social workers, community safety staff, and anyone who is involved in providing a
front facing service with customers.
