Credit Unions

Credit unions are savings and loans co-operatives where members share profits. Savings are ethically recycled for safe, affordable loans for the local community. Local Mums recommend the best Credit Unions in our area.


“I highly recommend Wandsworth Plus Credit Union to all Local Mums. I had been unlucky with a store card too. A £200 bill took what seemed like forever to clear. I also still needed the occasional bit of help with my cash flow. Since splitting up with my partner, my wages weren’t quite enough to make ends meet. A stall at a local community day helped me see that a credit union might be the answer. I signed up as a member of the Wandsworth Plus Credit Union and their staff came up with a way that could repay my borrowing and build up my savings. I arranged to have my child benefit paid directly to them. Not only did it mean I paid off the debt really quickly, but then I could start actually saving. That was new for me! I now borrows £700 twice a year. I take a loan in May to cover our summer holiday and a second one in November for Christmas. I wish I had found out about credit unions earlier.”

“I highly recommend Wandsworth Plus Credit Union to all Local Mums. I think that the credit union benefits everyone, not just those that want to borrow. You can save as well. They make it all so straight forward, easy and are always so friendly. They helped me out of a sticky situation and I am sure there are others that can relate to my story that they could help too.”
