CLEVR Money is a not-for-profit Credit Union.
We’re proud to help our members achieve financial security.
Our primary objective is to promote sound financial management, by encouraging responsible savings and giving access to affordable low-cost credit.
Turning borrowers into savers
Saving is the best way to avoid debt. But, if you do need to borrow money, our responsible loans can help.
Every member that borrows from us, is required to save alongside their loan repayment. Building savings whilst repaying the loan, is a great way to get into the habit or saving reguarly and can help end the cycle of borrowing.
Supporting our community
If you need some help, we believe that you should access it as soon as possible.
Our Member Support page makes it simpler to identify support that may be available to you.
“For our tenants CLEVR Money is a vital service now more than ever providing a safe and affordable form of lending which really helps households get some much needed stability and keeps them out of the clutches of loan sharks and disreputable lenders.”
John Donnellon, CEO of Blackpool Coastal Housing.

About credit unions
Credit Unions are financial co-operatives, owned and controlled by their members, offering a friendly service to their members.
Anyone who saves with the Credit Union will automatically become a member of the co-operative, and their savings can be withdrawn upon request. Any member can also apply to borrow from the pool of money formed by the members’ savings.
