NEW! FREE Training About Loan Sharks

Monday 17 September, 1pm – 2:30pm

Venue: Harwich Town Council Guildhall.

An illegal money lender is someone who lends money as a business without the legal authorisation required by the Financial Services and Markets Act. They rarely give any paperwork and if repayments are missed they often use violence and intimidation to get their money back.  There is a national Trading Standards team cracking down on illegal lenders in The East of England and we’d like to tell you more.  The training will give you more in-depth information about the project background, key things to look out for as a front line worker or volunteer, the relevance of loan sharks for your organisation or community and a better understanding of the investigation and prosecution process.  There is no charge for your attendance.

*Please note that the Guildhall is not fully accessible to those with restricted mobility. If anyone in your party has restricted mobility, this is not a problem but please let Matt Thubron know by 10th September 2018 and he will help make arrangements with the town council.
