Stop Loan Sharks Community Fund

Closing date

The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) has funding available for groups that want to raise awareness of the issues of illegal money lending. Grants of up to £5000 are available.

The money available has come from the proceeds of crime taken from convicted loan sharks. 

Funds can be spent on any worthwhile community project that meets the following criteria:

  • Contributes to raising the awareness of the dangers of using loan sharks
  • Prevents crime and disorder and publicises the Stop Loan Sharks message
  • Promotes the work of the Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) in communities
  • Encourages reporting of loan sharks
