About Credit Unions
A credit union is a financial co-operative which provides savings, loans and a range of services to its members. It is owned and controlled by the members.
Credit unions come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re looking for a credit union with online and phone banking, a payroll partnership with your employer, a local branch or service point you can walk into – or a combination of all three – there’s a good chance you’ll find the credit union you’re looking for to meet your needs.
Why join the Association of British Credit Unions?
Our dedicated staff team is committed to making a difference to credit unions in Great Britain. We provide a range of advice, training & development services to help member credit unions grow as thriving financial co-operatives.
