Stop Loan Sharks Community Fund

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).

Projects must raise awareness of the dangers of loan sharks, reduce crime and disorder and have a positive impact on communities.
