The Stop Loan Sharks Annual Community Fund is now open for applications!
Community organisations, charities and groups are encouraged to apply for grants of up to £5,000 from the England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) for projects to help tackle loan sharks. Collaborative bids between multiple agencies are also welcome. The funding comes from money seized from convicted loan sharks under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).
The project’s sole focus must raise awareness of the dangers of loan sharks, how to report it and have a positive impact on communities. The closing date is Wednesday, 30th June 2021 and we are not excepting paper applications.
