Who is eligible

We want to raise a generation of financially savvy smart savers, starting with every year 6 child from Southwark.  If your child is a resident of Southwark and is in year 6* (* to be eligible for this years scheme your child would need to have been born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007), they can claim a £20 voucher to deposit into a new or existing London Mutual Credit Union junior saver account.

How to claim your voucher

In October this year we are sending a letter to all parents/carers of eligible children, however if you have not received the letter or have misplaced it, you can email us at southwarksmartsavers@southwark.gov.uk and we will send you a new letter.

If you have received our letter and voucher but are yet to redeem it, you can cash your voucher simply by:

  • visiting any London Mutual Credit branch (find braches under the contact us tab) don't forget to bring along the letter and your child's birth certificate. If you are not a member yourself, you will also need to bring proof of ID
  • you can either set up a new account for your child and deposit the £20 voucher or add the voucher to your child's existing credit union account
