BBC TV series looking for credit union members

Curve Media are teaming up with credit unions to make a new TV series for the BBC exploring how people may benefit from a small loan to make a massive difference in their lives.

Every day thousands of people find themselves in need of just a few hundred pounds to get back on their feet, but the high street banks have turned their back on them. According to Oxfam, 36% of people are just one surprise heating bill or washing machine breakdown away from hardship. Many of these people are forced to turn to high cost credit providers such as pay-day loan companies – or even loan sharks – to tide them over, inevitably sinking them further into debt.

Credit unions are trying to combat this by providing loans that won’t get people into a spiral of debt.

As well as showcasing the good work that credit unions do, the programme will provide an inspirational look at some of the people who are attempting to make life a little better for themselves and their families. Perhaps they want to buy tools for a new business – or pay for surgery to save their dog’s life – or maybe pay for retraining in a new career? Maybe you need to take a sick relative on holiday – or make adjustments to your house – or pay a deposit on a new flat?

Whatever the reason, the programme hopes to see stories of hope and triumph as deserving people get the money they need to rebuild their lives, and get a grip on their finances.

If you are thinking of taking out a loan from London Capital Credit Union for any reason, then tell Curve Media your story by emailing casting@curvemedia.com  or phoning 0203 179 0099.
