What’s a Credit Union
Credit Unions are co-operatives providing savings, loans, and a range of other services to our members. We have a positive impact on the financial wellbeing of our communities.
Credit Unions love to save
Credit Unions encourage all their members to save – even when they are paying back a loan. This gives members access to affordable credit and a safety net when finances are low.
Credit Unions are fair
Credit Unions are ethical and responsible financial institutions that exist to meet members’ needs rather than to generate high returns for distant shareholders. We ensure that our members can afford what they borrow and repay at a rate that suits them. Our members always come first at the Credit Union
