“One of the lessons that Covid-19 has taught us is the value of supporting others in our community.

We know that the pandemic and the lockdown will have severe financial effects for many people and community-based financial support, such as Thamesbank Credit Union, could prove to be a lifeline.”

Sarah Olney, MP


Borrowing money can seem the only way to be able to afford additional expenses during winter months. We encourage members to always consider their disposable income and accept rates and terms which are financially viable – however tough it may seem at the time.

Taking out any new loan brings with it the responsibility to repay so that we don’t find ourselves in further financial difficulty. We are here to support members, so please contact us to talk through your options. If we’re unable to help, we can provide details of other organisations who might. That’s what we’re about.
