More free "Stop Loan Sharks" Training


From the organisers:
“Due to popular demand, additional sessions have been arranged Please see below for details and feel free to cascade out to partners.
The links are for “Eventbrite” where you’ll register. I will then send you through a link for “Microsoft Teams” a few days before the session that will allow you to join. You do not need to have Teams downloads on your lap-top or phone as I can let you into the session as a guest. I am happy to d a test run on Teams beforehand for anyone worried about connection issues…just let me know.
Could you spot a loan shark?
The purpose of loan shark training is to provide information and knowledge about the issue, how it relates to your work and how we can help those who have borrowed from illegal lenders. The length of the session is approximately one hour.
We will include key things to look out for as a sign that a friend, client or colleague may be involved with a loan shark. We will show the impact that illegal lenders have on victims and communities and how we can work together to stop people falling into the clutches of criminals.
