A COUNTY-WIDE scheme to provide support to residents who are struggling financially will be launched today.

Kent Savers Credit Union will serve all 1.6 million of the county's residents, providing financial support to low income families.

It was due to be officially unveiled at Little Pebbles Children's Centre, Gravesend, on Thursday morning.

The union, which will run out of The Old Town Hall in Gravesend, is designed to offer people an alternative to loan sharks and other high interest loans that can prove very difficult to pay-off.

Kevin Lynes, the council member for regeneration and economic development, said: "Kent Savers will provide financial trust and support where it is needed most, while also offering a genuine alternative for people looking to invest their savings and apply for loans. We see this initiative as a vital resource for the county to help the people of Kent.
