Credit Unions

Credit Unions are community savings and loans co-operatives, where members pool their savings and responsibly lend to one and other. You can save a little as you want each week or month (up to a maximum of £15,000) and borrow responsibly. They offer savings and great value loans plus they are local, ethical and know what their members want. Many credit unions now offer a range of services including a current account, benefits direct, ISAs and Child Trust Funds.

The three main aims of a Credit Union are:

  • To encourage its members to save regularly.
  • To provide loans to members at very low rates of interest.
  • To provide members with help and support on managing their financial affairs (if required).

Other Credit Union Sites

Credit Unions are run for the community by the community. Each member makes regular payments into a savings account - this fund then provides the basis for preferential rate loans. The income generated by lending, helps the union meet the operating expenses, build reserves and pay savers an annual dividend.
