About this event
The purpose of loan shark training is to provide information and knowledge about the issue, how it relates to your work in Berkshire (and beyond) and how we can help those who have borrowed from illegal lenders. The session will include key things to look out for as a sign that a friend, client or colleague may be involved with a loan shark and 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.
