What are Credit Unions?
Hoot, Wise with Money is a Bolton based Credit Union. https://www.wisewithmoney.org.uk/
To be a member of Hoot Credit Union you must be 16 years or over and either live, work, study or volunteer within the common bond area or be employed by one of our partner employers. Like Hoot we do not advocate getting loans you can not afford to pay back. We do however recommend making regular savings, even if just small amounts that can help when an emergency pops up, or when you want to spend a little more like for holidays for example.
