Credit Unions are financial community co-operatives that promote savings as well as loans.

Members of the credit union pool their savings to provide the funds from which loans are made. The interest on loans pays for the running of the credit union and if there is a surplus, members get a share of the profit known as a dividend.

We expect all of our members to save as much as they can afford, even if they are repaying a loan. As a minimum, we would expect you to save at least £2 per week/£10 per month and keep this in your savings account while you have a loan outstanding with us. Once your savings balance is higher than your loan balance, you may if you wish withdraw the difference.
