Castle Community Bank

Established in 1986 Companies House Number 19CUS

Trading as North Edinburgh & Castle Credit Union formed late in 2015 following the merger of the two long established credit unions: Castle and North Edinburgh, along with the members of the Water of Leith Credit Union Study Group that served the communities of Craigmillar and North Edinburgh.

The study group was set up with the aim of establishing a Credit Union in Leith. Castle Community Bank has built on this proud heritage to extend its reach to people acro ss Edinburgh and the Lothians, and now across Scotland thanks to its association with FEA UK. 

They share FEA’s belief that the best way to fight financial exploitation is to educate the general population on how to effectively manage their financial affairs.

Innovative online platform has seen a surge in new saving and loan applications and this, unquestionably augurs well for the future development of Castle Community Bank, unburdened by shareholder dividends, ‘fat cat’ bonuses and other significant banking costs.

The common bond qualifications for membership are based on people who live or work in the ‘EH’ postcode area. Castle Community Bank has two “walk in” branches in Niddrie and Wardieburn
