Save...

We all know we should save - especially for Christmas, birthdays and emergencies, but many of us don’t. This can mean we end up worrying or borrowing money at the last minute often from high cost lenders.

Both of Shropshire's Credit Unions, Just and FAIRshare make saving (and borrowing) as simple and easy as possible.

They can help you to:

  • Save as much as you want, from £1 per week/£5 per month. (Our tip is to save a small amount regularly and try not to withdraw it.)
  • Access affordable, low cost loans, for regular savers and an optional Prepaid VISA Card, with rewards. Credit Unions will often lend to those who save well, and charge low interest.
  • Save regularly helping to spread the cost of special occasions like Christmas, holidays and birthdays -saving just £5 a week, would give you £250 at Christmas.

* Small fee to load money onto Prepaid Visa Card
