Community Savings is a charity which is able to offer account facilities and, in certain circumstances, emergency funding to Islanders who are in need of such help. these accounts are generally available to all, including those who may be blacklisted elsewhere.
It is not a bank but operates like a credit union with groups of individuals who have a common interest, you can open an account for day-to-day use along with a separate savings account in a similar way to a bank. Any money you save will earn a dividend once a year.
To open an account you will need to go into the office in Seale Street or contact your CIG administrator with some form of photographic identity such as a passport or driving licence and a copy of a recent household bill in your name to confirm your address.
Once your account has been opened you will be given a passbook, paying in slips and a reference number to give to your employer or to Social Security.
They will expect you to save £5 per month towards your savings and every three months you will receive a statement so that you can keep in touch with your progress. There are Community Savings advisors available to provide guidance to those who open accounts on how to manage their monthly budgeting.
