Managing your money
Christmas is an expensive time of year and can be another added financial worry for lots of us who are already trying to make ends meet. Loan Sharks are using Christmas as an opportunity to exploit those most in need, by offering quick cash loans at astronomical rates. We're supporting the Illegal Money Lending Team's #SleighNoToLoanSharks campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of loan sharks.
Make sure you know the signs and how to protect yourself and loved ones from Loan Sharks. In Sunderland, we've partnered with Moneywise Credit Union to offer affordable credit and savings, find out more here.
