We have stopped lending but there may be other options for you;
- Community Development Finance Institutions (or CDFIs) are community lenders that offer affordable and flexible loans alongside free access to advice. There are a dozen CDFIs across the country. You can apply for a loan from a CDFI either online or over the phone and there are branch services available in some areas. Search for a CDFI by visiting https://www.findingfinance.org.uk/. Please note that search results appear in alphabetical order.
- Credit Unions are community savings and loans providers. They can offer affordable loans to people within their local area. Credit Unions are often able to lend to people whose circumstances might mean they struggle to get a loan from other lenders. They often have branches as well as phone and online support. There are hundreds of Credit Unions across the UK. To find one in your area and to see if you are eligible to join visit https://www.findyourcreditunion.co.uk/
- Credit Unions and CDFIs also offer loans at specific times such as Christmas, for school uniforms and for other one off expenses.
