Make A Fresh Start

Now we have all ridden the storm of pandemic and cost of living crisis, 2024 is the year to start building our financial resilience and making a Fresh Start.

Hoot is on a mission to improve the financial well-being of people in the community and we can start right here!

Make a Fresh Start by opening a Christmas Savings account

Building up for next Christmas can be the first step to reducing financial worry at a time when your finances are stretched.. In 2023, Hoot members had accumulated over £60,000 in Christmas savings and this year we want to make that £100,000. Find out more at

Make a Fresh Start by thinking about debt consolidation

Citizens Advice research shows that 37% of people have used Buy Now Pay Later in the last 12 months and 25% of people have failed to make the repayments. Usage increases enormously at Christmas and in January some of you may be faced with a higher number of BNPL repayments than planned.

The average spend on credit cards at Christmas is £672. If you pay only the monthly minimum on that amount it will take you 2 years and 11 months to repay and cost up to £180 in interest.

A debt consolidation loan will mean you can reduce your monthly outgoings to one easy repayment and help you to manage your debt more easily. See more here
