Credit Union Schemes

Real nappies will save you money in the long run but it is money up front, a great way of avoiding this up front cost is to borrow from your local credit union. They supply low cost loans for any purpose and it’s a great way of buying all the real nappies you need without breaking the bank. Loans are repaid weekly or monthly whatever suits you best.

To be eligible for a loan from the credit union you must live or work within the County Borough of Gwynedd or Anglesey. You must save for a minimum of 8 weeks; you will then be eligible to borrow twice the amount of money you have saved i.e. if you have saved £100 you can borrow up to £200.
