ABCUL In The Media


The majority of credit unions in England, Scotland and Wales choose to join ABCUL and the Association represents the majority of the British credit union movement on every key measure - number of credit unions, number of members served by credit unions, and assets.

Our dedicated staff team is committed to making a difference to credit unions in Great Britain. We provide a full range of advice, training and development services to help our member credit unions grow as sustainable, thriving financial co-operatives.

As the leading credit union trade body in Great Britain, ABCUL deals with press enquiries from national and regional journalists across the country on a regular basis.  

Below you can find news items that ABCUL has responded to over the last few months and any and all of the articles can be attributed to ABCUL if required. We thank you for your interest in credit unions.

If you are a journalist and want support with any news, features or photography, please contact us via our dedicated mailbox and we will get back to immediately.
