What is a Credit Union?

A Credit Union is a responsible alternative source of savings and affordable loans. Each is run for the benefit of Its members, with no profits going to external shareholders.

We are regulated by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme so your money is protected up to £85,000 per individual.

Best of all, as a member you’ll be able to apply for loans with flexible terms and repayments at affordable interest rates.

You Can Still Apply for a Loan Even If You Don’t Receive Any Child Benefit

Even if you don't receive any child benefit, you can still apply for a low interest loan from us. However, if you are a new member, you will need to save with us for a minimum of 8 weeks before you can apply for one.

Two Types of Loan We Offer to our New Members

First of all, please note: To be able to apply for any type of loan from us, you will need to be a member. If you want to join us, please contact us for details.

We have two types of loan available for our new members: Family Loan and Saver Loan.

Family Loan

If you receive child benefit, you can apply for a loan up to £500 under our Family Loan Scheme. The amount you can borrow will depend on assessments by one of our loan officers.

Saver Loan

If you don’t receive any child benefit, you can apply for a Saver Loan. However, this loan may not be available if you have recently joined us. You will need to have saved with us for at least 8 weeks before you can be considered for this type of loan. After that, you may be able to borrow three times your savings depending on our assessments.
