We understand that the day-to-day expenses of bringing up a family can really add up.
That’s why we’ve created our Family Loan, which lets you borrow up to £1,000 using your Child Benefit for the repayments.
It could help spread the cost of whatever your family needs – school uniforms, a new gadget, toys, a family holiday… it’s up to you.
Fast-track Family Loan approval
The Family Loan is linked to your Child Benefit payments, so there’s a very high approval rate if you pay your Child Benefit in to the credit union, with loan decisions made by people, not computers.
And, once you’re up and running, you can easily request to top up your loan again too – see our FAQs at the bottom of the page for full details.
What does it cost?
We pride ourselves on our fair and affordable interest rates and at 42% APR, the Family Loan could save you hundreds of pounds compared to borrowing from other lenders.
Family Loan Representative example: Borrow £1,000 for 12 months at 42% APR.
Repay in 12 monthly instalments of £100.30
Total repaid £1,204 Total cost of borrowing £204
Borrowing with a difference
Borrowing from a credit union is different to banks and other lenders. We’re a not-for-profit organisation, run for the benefit of members
That means we can offer you competitive rates on loans, and we’ll also help you to build up a savings pot as you repay.
It’s a safe, fair and affordable way to borrow, and helps build your credit history for future borrowing.
