Overview

Birmingham City Council Rent Service and Citysave Credit Union have joined together to introduce a new Citysave Tenant Account for Birmingham City Council tenants. This is funded by the Illegal Money Lending Team for a trial period.

The account is a complimentary addition to tenants who are struggling with the budgeting aspect of Universal Credit and need some support with making rent payments to the council from their Universal Credit.

The account aims to provide Birmingham City Council tenants an alternative option to mainstream banking.
