Not a day goes by when we hear about how the cost of living crisis is affecting so many people in our community. It is causing worry, stress and sleepless nights for so many people. Letham4All SCIO and the great partners we work with want to try and help people get through these difficult times and enable them to take steps to get on top of money worries.  Improving your financial well-being can make such a difference to health, relationships, and your well-being.

To help do this Letham4All SCIO and Perth and Kinross Credit Union will be working together to develop a local outreach branch of the Credit Union to run alongside our Community Fridge4All. The Perth and Kinross Credit Union opened in April 2014 as a savings and loans cooperative owned and controlled by its members – people like you who live, work, or study in the Perth and Kinross area.

Perth and Kinross Credit Union is an ethical financial cooperative,offering a genuine alternative to High Street banks and high-interest lenders. It does not encourage members to over-commit themselves and as such will only offer loans that borrowers can afford to repay. It also helps you build your approach to saving for special events or rainy days.  All their saving and borrowing products come with free life insurance cover for all members.

To help us get started, we are looking for people who have a passion for making a difference in people’s lives to volunteer to help us open an outreach Credit Union. Full training will be given and you would be part of a small team offering a weekly service in the Letham Community Fridge4All Building and in the new Letham Community Hub when it opens.
