Every year in the UK, £10 billion is stolen by scammers. The average age of a scam victim is 75, and 53% of people aged 65 or over have been targeted by scammers. This is why Mid & East Antrim PCSP and Mid & East Antrim Agewell Partnership have hooked up to deliver free 30 minute training sessions to local businesses so staff will know how to help customers who may be scammed.

As well as the training, businesses will also receive gift bags for customers packed with helpful booklets and information so that they are well equipped to protect themselves from any opportunistic scammers.
