In September 2016 they rebranded to become First for Money – Your Credit Union reflecting the strong community values and ethical, transparent nature for the future. The decision to rebrand the organisation was driven by the results of a series of focus groups in 2016, attended by both members and non-members of Bridges Your Community Bank. The new brand encapsulates First for Money’s dedication to providing an ethical way to managing savings and loans for both businesses and individuals.  The website had an overhaul to reflect the new brand and demonstrate the full range of services on offer to members. The website now offers more in terms of functionality – including a loan calculator with a slider to help customers determine the value of a loan from First for Money. Anyone who lives and works in Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Northumberland is eligible to join First for Money – Your Credit Union.
