What is Community Savings?

A helping hand in times of need

Firstly – Community Savings is not a bank! ....
It is a charity which aims to support those in the community who are financially or socially disadvantaged.

Community Savings operates not unlike a credit union but has developed into what is believed to be  an unique operation. We provide basic account facilities and a pre-paid debit card but also offer support through our budgeting and mentoring services. In certain circumstances we provide  emergency funding loans at low rates of interest or even grants. We also deliver a school education programme and are part of the Prison Rehabilitation service.

Lynda's Story

As with many things in life, ‘until it happens to you’ we usually do not understand what someone else’s problems are really like.

Naturally, we often want to keep our problems to ourselves but it is really important to share them sometimes so that others can understand the issues.

So we are really grateful to Lynda, one of our customers, for sharing her experiences of how she came to us at Community Savings and how we managed to help her.

Donate

Help us turn lives around for the better. All our customer services are free but to continue helping those struggling to manage their finances, we rely totally on donations.
