SPG Technical Review - Exeter
In the current climate, this event has unfortunately been postponed and g iven the uncertainties, no new date has yet been set. Our team will provide an update as soon as possible.
On Friday 13 March, the R3 Executive Committee and R3 Executive Committee Consultation Group met to discuss the impact of the ongoing spread of COVID-19. We took into account the prevailing advice from HM Government as well as data from other expert bodies but most importantly we took account of feedback from our members.
We are conscious of the need for R3 to be a responsible corporate citizen. While the data suggest that the chances of contracting COVID-19 are generally low, there are still many unknowns about this virus. We are therefore cancelling or deferring all R3 events scheduled to take place by the end of June 2020.
This includes the SPG Techinical Review in Exeter which has been postponed. Given the uncertainties, no new date has yet been set. We will provide an update as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and in the meantime, for any queries, please contact our Events Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Loan Sharks and the Illegal Money Lending Team
The Illegal Money Lending Team is a National Trading Standards government agency who have the powers to investigate, prosecute & convict illegal money lenders or loan sharks. These can be individuals or groups that lend money without the permission of the Financial Conduct Authority and are therefore committing a criminal offence.
Loan sharks target the most vulnerable people, can charge extortionately high interest rates and will use threats, intimidation, violence and worse to force their victims into payment.
This talk will highlight how loan sharks operate, how to identify a potential victim and where to report any findings.
