Wherry Dragon was originally born out of a credit union set up for employees of Norwich City Council – Norwich City Council Employees Credit Union (NCCECU)
NCCECU was established in 1992 as part of a Council wide initiative to promote the valuable work of the credit union movement to the City and its residents. It exists today as one of seven credit unions operating in Norfolk.
The City Council had been changing its approach to delivering its services The Board of Directors recognised in 2006 and made a strategic decision to widen the ‘common bond’ to other local government organisations across Norfolk. City Care, Norfolk County Council, Norse Commercial Services and other organisations connected to the credit union.
In 2007 the name became Wherry Dragon Credit Union, a countywide financial co-operative offering membership to all local government employees and those providing local government services across Norfolk. The future direction is bold and groundbreaking for Norfolk the plan to grow and to offer services to all local government related organisations in Norfolk – from Cromer to Diss, Great Yarmouth to King’s Lynn.
