New Child Benefit Loans

Need a little bit of help with the cost of a new baby or school related costs?

Apply to borrow between £250 and £500 with your local credit union over a 12 month period.

Every new borrower and saver will receive a £10 savings bonus—our way of helping set you on your way in saving for your family’s future.

This offer is limited so apply now to avoid disappointment.

Every savings and loan plan is individually tailored. All you need do is phone. In order to qualify for your loan you will also need to become a saver with Swan Credit Union, entitling you to the benefits of membership.

You won't need to worry about finding the money each month to repay your loan as repayments are taken from your Child Benefit. You can apply for a loan immediately.

New partnership payroll agreement with Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust

A new payroll agreement has been set up with Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust (VAHT), meaning that their staff can pay into a Swan Credit Union account direct from their salary. The partnership also means that VAHT residents will be encouraged to join our Credit Union and VAHT will be holding sign up sessions at Buckingham and Winslow libraries as well as at their offices in September.


Credit Union in the community

This summer our Development & Expansion Officer Diane has been out in the community, running financial capability training with young adults and working in conjunction with Children Centres at a variety of events to share information about our Credit Union and the new Child Benefit Loan. These kinds of events are really important to help us share our message so if you know of any opportunities let us know.
