You may be able to borrow money at much cheaper rates by joining a credit union.

Credit unions

Credit unions are set up for the benefit of local people. They are an easy and convenient way to save and borrow, offering loans at very low costs. Profits are put back in to the credit union to improve its services and products for you.

They can also help you buy essential home items at a low weekly payment that's much cheaper than many high street companies.
