Loan sharks present a significant threat to the safety, security and well-being of many individuals in our community. Join in the campaign to spread awareness this festive season.
Fears are growing over debt as more people could turn to loan sharks to cover Christmas
- Nearly one in ten people turned to loan sharks to cover the costs of
Christmas last year.
- More than half of victims turned to illegal money lenders in order to pay
for essentials such as utilities, food and fuel in the first half of 2022.
This new campaign #SleighNoToLoanSharks aims to protect communities from the devastating effects of illegal money lending in the run up to Christmas
