. Borrowing money


Borrowing money, when done responsibly, can help build or restore a credit rating, make necessary purchases, return to school or create economic opportunity.

We have developed a number of loan products and financial programs to provide access to credit for Southwark, Lambeth or Westminsters residents.

Anyone in receipt of benefits knows how hard it is to get help with a loan from most lenders - apart from loan sharks or door-to-door lenders who charge exorbitant interest.

Westminsters Credit Union is able to offer safe low cost loans to their members who are on qualifying benefits as well as those who are in employment.

Benefits can be paid into the Credit Union, we will deduct the agreed loan repayment plus a small amount for savings, and you can withdraw the rest.
