How can we help you?
The Holywood Trust is a grant giving charity which supports opportunities for young people in Dumfries and Galloway primarily aged 15 - 25.
Have you heard about our local credit unions? There are two community credit unions based in Dumfries & Galloway and they cover the region between them. Solway Credit Union has an office in Dumfries and is available for people who live or work in Nithsdale, Stewartry, or Annandale & Eskdale. In the west, Stranraer Credit Union covers Wigtownshire. Being run by the members for the members on a not-for-profit basis, they provide a safe home for savings and are a source of affordable credit. If you choose to borrow, you`ll need to have been a saving member for 13 weeks before you can apply. Solway has also got a great new product called Rent First which is designed to help people on Universal Credit run their budget and make sure their rent is always paid.
