Cardiff Credit Union (CCU) has linked up with Cardiff Community Housing Association (CCHA) and the Star Centre to offer weekly information sessions to encourage local residents to start saving for their future.
Visitors will be able to speak to a friendly member of staff, who will be able to offer information about joining the Credit Union, applying for loans and opening savings accounts for their children.
Helen Cocco, Marketing Officer at Cardiff Credit Union said "This is an exciting opportunity for local residents to turn their finances around and start saving for their futures. Our low cost loans offer really competitive rates of interest, making them an affordable alternative to credit cards, payday loans, door step lenders and hire purchase."
Kevin Protheroe, Chief Executive, Cardiff Community Housing Association is delighted to be working in partnership to promote financial inclusion in the local community. He said: "Access to affordable credit is very important, especially to those on lower incomes as they can ill afford the high interest rates associated with other types of lending. We hope people will come along and take advantage of the services CCU have on offer."

10am-11am at Cardiff Community Housing Association. Meteor Street, Adamsdown.
11.30am -12.30am at The Star Centre in Splott.
