TESCO Initatives


TESCO has taken a few initiatives for community welfare :


Tesco Reconnect

Tesco are running a scheme called Reconnect until 2023 and it is aimed at vulnerable and disadvantaged people. A phone is supplied to the customer with three months credit. You submit your request by emailing tescomobile.littlehelps@tesco.com referencing Tesco Mobile Reconnects, how it would benefit the service user and what device is needed and they will send one out. For more on the scheme and the Tesco partnership with Crisis – https://www.tescomobile.com/reconnects

On another note there are still a few limited spaces left for online training so please share with any contacts who work in England.


Session 1: Could you spot a loan shark?

The purpose of loan shark training is to provide information and knowledge about the issue, how it relates to your work and how they can help those who have borrowed from illegal lenders. The length of the session is approximately one and a half hours.

It will include key things to look out for as a sign that a friend, client or colleague may be involved with a loan shark. The session will show the impact that illegal lenders have on victims and communities and how we can work together to stop people falling into the clutches of criminals.
