The organisation started in 1998 as Timeline Credit Union Ltd providing services for Greenwich Council employees and pensioners.
In 2004 they merged with the Greenwich Waterfront Credit Union and began offering services to everyone living or working in Greenwich and Thamesmead, and changed the name to Greenwich Credit Union Ltd. In 2012 they adopted new rules to allow people living or working in Bexley to join and also to permit organisations as members – again changing the trading name to Greenwich & Bexley Credit Union.
As of June 2017, there was 7,600 adult members, 420 junior savers, a loan portfolio of £5.3m and £8m of members’ savings. In total they have loaned over £33m to local residents and employees.
