Your local choice for convenient savings and affordable loans.
We were founded by employees of Southwark Council in 1982. Since then, we’ve had one mission: serving our member communities by providing fair and ethical financial services.
Today, we help thousands of people in our community to borrow at affordable rates. Our partnerships with dozens of local employers including schools and the NHS make it easy to repay and convenient to save by deducting it straight from your salary.
How it works
Fair finance at the heart of Southwark’s community
Safe and secure
Borrow and save straight from your pay.
Through our payroll schemes, you can arrange to have a portion of your salary deducted each month and put it straight into your savings or towards the cost of your loan.
How we’re different
Why bank with a credit union?
Owned by the community
As a co-op, we are run for our members , not shareholders. That means we put your financial wellbeing first, and do right by you, not just our bottom line.
The best rates
There are no hidden charges or early repayment fees. We can save you hundreds of pounds compared to credit cards and rip-off payday lenders.
