IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A 'CATCH 22' SITUATION, I.E. FOUND A JOB BUT CANNOT AFFORD A CAR/BIKE/MOTORCYCLE TO GET TO IT, help could be at hand with the

FIRST DORSET CREDIT UNION

If you are over 18, you may be able to make an application for a loan to buy, for example, a motorcyle, although you would need to be a member first.

The easiest way to become a member is to pop into one of their service points, all opening times are on the website. Gillingham's Service Point is currently located in the Community Office, 1 Chantry Fields, Gillingham, SP8 4UA (next to the library) Saturday 10.00 - 12.00 Wednesdays 12.00 - 14.00. 

 

You would need to provide 2 forms of ID and a minimum of £4 to open the account. Once you have joined you can make an application for a loan. It is a good idea to set up a regular savings plan as soon as possible to show what you can afford and your intent to repay a loan. Loans are granted based on the ability to repay the loan.

Service points are all staffed with volunteers who will be able to explain the loan process and help with any forms.
