Cross Party Group On Credit Unions

The Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Group on Credit Unions


The Cross Party Group on credit unions was founded in 2009, with ABCUL acting as secretariat for the Group. With the new term beginning for Scottish Parliament, ABCUL is currently looking to re-establish the CPG.

The CPG meets every few months, bringing together MSPs from across the parties, credit unions and stakeholders to discuss opportunities, issues of concern and the impact of devolved policy decisions on credit unions in Scotland. Previous CPG meetings have discussed topics such as helping Scots through the recession, fair and appropriate debt solutions, publicising credit unions and promoting financial capability.

You can access meeting minutes and details of forthcoming meetings here. For information about the CPG or to receive updates about meetings, please email
