Time to plan for Christmas!
There is still time to become a Member of SCU, save for 13 weeks and then borrow to cover the cost of Christmas. You will be eligible to apply for a low cost ethical loan, 3 times the amount in your savings with repayments to suit your budget.
Save money by being prepared and not borrowing from high cost lenders.
Remember - it's not what is under the tree that is important but who is around the tree!
Less financial stress means a more enjoyable Christmas.

Join Solway Credit Union…….financial services you can bank on!
Solway Credit Union (SCU) was set up in 1999 by a group of local people interested in promoting thrift, namely encouraging better ‘financial health’ through regular saving and low cost loans. We are able to provide a range of practical, affordable and straightforward financial services to everyone living or working in our Common Bond area of Annandale & Eskdale, Nithsdale and the Stewartry.
Whatever your current circumstances, we will do our best to find a financial solution that suits your needs. We’re a different kind of bank with all of the usual government-backed safeguards as members of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme but with one very big difference in how we operate... we are owned by people like you and operated for the sole benefit of people like you... people that live or work in Annandale & Eskdale, Nithsdale or the Stewartry.
We currently offer a Share account, Junior Saver for children up to 16, a simple Loan account for those wishing to borrow, and Payroll Deduction for regular savings. Savings and Loans are protected by free life assurance provided by CUNA Insurance Group. All savings are fully guaranteed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme up to a maximum of £85,000. We are also affiliated to our trade body ABCUL, Association of British Credit Unions Ltd.
As an organisation that prides itself on its ‘social responsibility’, we strive to improve and enhance the social, financial and economic well-being of members by promoting sensible savings and affordable borrowing. In other words, our ethos is ‘ethical’ banking.
