We are aware that COVID-19 has left some people struggling financially and loan sharks may look to take advantage of those who have found themselves in a vulnerable position and feel they have nowhere else to turn for help. We are committed to helping victims of illegal money lending and providing support that is immediate, practical and tailored to their needs.
Our specialist team are still here to help 24/7, in the same way we always do. If you are concerned that a client, resident, or service user may be a victim of illegal money lending, you can make a referral to our services here.
Stop Loan Sharks have launched a new live chat service to provide extra advice and support to victims of illegal money lending.
We have helped over 30,000 people escape the clutches of loan sharks and have launched the live chat to make our services even more accessible to those who need them most.
We continue to provide round-the-clock information, advice and support for anyone affected by illegal money lending on our 24-hour helpline 0300 555 2222. You can also report a loan shark using our
confidential online form or email us. The new service will initially be open between 9am and 5pm every Tuesday at www.stoploansharks.co.uk
When you click on the Live Chat icon, you will begin a one-on-one session with an expert support worker from the IMLT.
