recruiting for members before registering in 1991 with the intension of creating alternative personal financial services in the community and the place of work under the ownership and direction of its members.
From the beginning they provided the best they could under the circumstances low cost loans and savings in the Bridgeton, Calton and Dalmarnock areas of Glasgow.
Since then the Credit Union has offered people a friendly way to save and borrow. They offer a service for local people and over the years have allowed local people to save and borrow at an affordable rate.
The Credit Union offers a Junior Saver Account where children can start saving until 18 and can then transfer to an adult account helping them with finances as they go through life.
What they had created has stood the test of time and a debt of gratitude is owed to those founder members for the benefits enjoyed today.
With the introduction of IT and the internet the credit union is allowing the members to begin complete certain processes online and with the specialist security measures that are provided. Giving the same level of security as if members were standing with a cashier at the counter.
