Need a new ... fridge? Bed? Tv? Sofa? Save and borrow with your local community bank. Join 2 Shires today!
Credit unions help people take control of their money by encouraging them to save what they can and borrow only what they can afford to repay. 2 Shires Community Bank is a not-for-profit bank that exists to benefit the community. You can apply for a load that is massively cheaper than doorstep lenders and payday loads and competitive with high street banks.

BDC Money Advisors are always on hand to help customers make the most of their finances. Our Money Advisors have helped hundreds of tenants to make sense of their money through FREE financial health checks ensuring they receive all the benefits they’re entitled to and advice on how to manage debts and make their money go further.
They also give plenty of advice to future tenants, especially those who will be living independently for the first time and may not be aware of the costs of setting-up and running a home.
