The credit union has been successfull in its application for a small grant!
This was all thanks to your votes, so the credit union would like to give a big thank you to everyone that voted for us. The money will be used to publicise the credit union services in Solihull.
The cheque was presented to the four successful applicants DIAL Kingshurst, Midland Heart, St Basil's and the credit union by the Mayor of Solihull.
The grant is funded via the England Illegal Money Lending Team (Anti-Loan Shark Team). If you or anyone you know is at risk from a loan shark you can get help. Just phone 0300 555 2222.
Payday loan websites blocked on Solihull library computers
Payday loan websites have been blocked on computers in all Solihull Council libraries.
The move comes following a notice of motion passed at Full Council on 3 December which noted that more and more people are getting into difficulty over payday loans.
The websites of more than 200 payday loan firms such as Wonga and QuickQuid will no longer be accessible on computers within the borough’s 14 libraries.
Advance Credit Union Ltd is the new name for North Birmingham Community Credit Union (NBCCU) with effect from April 2013.
The new name better reflects the continued growth and outlook of the credit union.
There are many more changes too:
- new logo, website and branding
- Internet Banking
- Mobile banking
- additional services
