Funding available to tackle illegal money lending 27/04/2017

In previous bulletins, we've highlighted the work being done to tackle loan sharks and illegal money lending.


The England Illegal Money Lending Team now 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. 


The aim of this funding is to give groups the opportunity to raise awareness of the issue in their community in a different way.


Residents, charities, community and voluntary groups, schools and statutory agencies can apply for funding of up to £5,000 spend on any community project that meets the following criteria:


  • Contributes to raising the awareness of the dangers of using loan sharks
  • Prevents crime and disorder and publicises the Stop Loan Sharks message
  • Promotes the work of the Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) in communities
  • Encourages reporting of loan sharks.


The closing date for applications is Friday 30 June 2017.
