We’re on the road again!

Last 12 months, we have been all over the UK, attending workplaces, conferences, Annual General Meetings, regional meetings, and training events. It’s great to sign up new members to join our on-growing membership of the credit union and to speak to our existing members on the road providing positive and helpful feedback.

We have visited all over the UK from Dundee, down to London to Northern Ireland covering CWU, PCS, Royal Mail, BT, HMRC, DWP, and a lot more sites.

Would you like us to visit your workplace?

We would love to speak to your staff and work colleagues about the products and services we have to offer including information and help on Cost-Of-Living, National Strikes, Emergency Share Withdrawals, Life Cover and to reduce your out-going payments with our Debt Consolidation Loan.
