How do I apply?

Download our loan application form here or log into our member's area to start filling in your loan application. If you're applying online we'll need you to send us through your last three months bank statements and proof of your income i.e. your most recent wage slip or benefit letter. You can send this by email to or by post to our main office. We'll call you when the loan is ready or if we need some more information, from there you'll need to drop by one of our offices to sign some paperwork.

If you're applying in one of our offices just fill in the loan application form, don't worry if you don't have a printer you can pick them up at any of our offices. We'll take your loan application and other supporting documents from you and from there we will be able to advise you on how long it may take us to process your application.

What do I need to bring with me?

We're a responsible lender and as such all loan decisions we make are made based on your income, expenditure and ability to repay.

Where a member's benefit is paid into their credit union account, no proof of income documentation will be required. Where this is not the case, the member will be required to provide proof of income documentation.

You should also bring with you some form of ID to allow us to confirm your identity.
