Brian Shields Trust

Quite often the victim of a loan shark can feel very isolated and vulnerable which can leave them feeling that they have nobody who they can turn to for help.
They may fear that by speaking out they leave themselves open to reprisals and violent threats,  Loan sharks actually rely on the fact that they have intimidated their victims to this point.

THE BRIAN SHIELDS TRUST\'S ROLE
 
To ensure that anyone facing serious issues with debt/loan sharks will be taken seriously and will receive the help they deserve.

They provide an accessible confidential listening service  to bridge the gap between the Authorities & the communities.
