Financial Help for Universal Credit Claimants!
Would you like to find out more about the help available to new and existing claimants?Take a look here
Stroud District Council has decided to financially support SVCU for another year – the latest in its long history of helping the credit union. Its £10,000 grant will enable us to divert more resources towards helping local people rather than paying for our operations. Read more here.
Through the summer and autumn of 2016 Stroud Valleys Credit Union put on eight performances of Saved!, a drama loosely based in the traditions of the mummers/pantomime/European street theatre.
Written by local wordy Jonny Fluffypunk, Saved! lays bare the world of tight domestic finance, the temptations of easy loans and the dramas played out daily in the residential streets of everywhere. It was performed by four well-known local actors and artistes, including Jonny, Ellie Holliday, John Broadbent, and Mark Abbott.
Take a look at the film about the event and enjoy the show!
