Happy 16th Birthday!

A FAIRshare Young Savers account is available to anyone from birth to under 16 years.

On your 16th birthday, your account will automatically transfer to an adult savings account.  Like all adult members, you will become a shareholder in FAIRshare & can share any profits made in the form of a dividend, as a reward for saving regularly.  You continue to save regularly as before, perhaps for a new phone, driving lessons, university or your own place to live.

On your 18th birthday, you can manage your FAIRshare account online using Online Members’ Access & benefit from FAIRshare’s affordable loans, subject to meeting our loan criteria.

We’d love to hear from you.
