We are delighted to be at the Birmingham Forward Steps conference today, Monday 22nd November. In Birmingham 37% of children are living in poverty, that’s 100,000. The Covid-19 pandemic has made things worse; a 4.7% increase. So many organisations in our city working together to tackle the problems many households are facing. As a credit union, AdvanceCU supports many local families manage their money well, able to save regularly and borrow affordably when they need to.Find out more
Some of the leaflets we’re distributing today are free and available from MoneyHelper, the new resource from the Money Advice Service and the Illegal Money Lending Team.
Do you, your friends or family borrow from Provident Financial?
As Provident doorstep lending is closing, they are recommending customers join their local credit union.
Recommend Advance Credit Union and we will do what we can to help. Find out more here.
Provident are no longer collecting payments. If you are approached by anyone claiming to be collecting for them, do not pay them – it may be a scam.

Big day for us last week, we finally have the keys to our new branch on Corporation St in Birmingham city centre! Over the next few weeks we’ll be fitting it out, recruiting additional staff and opening our doors to many more new credit union Members. Erdington branch remains open. This is a very exciting development for us; an opportunity to reinvent credit union for the next generation.
