Stop Loan Sharks
Illegal money lending - loan sharks
Cheshire East Council want to help if people think they are dealing with a shark. They are working with the Illegal Money Lending team to stop people becoming a victim of a loan shark.
Someone issuing loans must have a credit licence. A loan shark is someone who runs a money lending business without permission from the Financial Conduct Authority. Loan Sharks rarely give any paperwork and if payments are missed they often use intimidation and violence to get money from their 'clients'.

Cheshire East Safeguarding Children’s Partnership aim to do this through our collective commitment to;
- Strategic Leadership across the partnership – to make the safety of children and young people a priority.
- Challenge – through focused inquiries or investigations into particular practice or issues on the basis of evidence, practitioner experience and the views of children and young people, in order for us to improve together
- Learning – to achieve the highest standards of development and to ensure all practitioners have the skills and knowledge to be effective. This will include listening to the voice of children and young people and using what we hear to inform best practice.
