Welcome to Wyvern Savings and Loans

We are the co-operative savings and loans organisation for Dorset and Somerset.

A community based organisation, staffed by four paid staff and over 100 local volunteers, we offer our members with a safe and ethical place to save (up to £15,000), as well as providing affordable loans.

We can offer loans from £100 to £7,500 depending on your circumstances. Our repayment schedules are negotiable and we will agree payment details with you – even if you don't have a bank account or can't get credit with high street banks.

I wanted to join a Christmas Savings scheme to save up a little bit of money to buy my kids' presents. Wyvern Savings and Loans have been the perfect choice and now I've enough saved already to start thinking about what I'm going to buy them.
