Renfrewshire Wide Credit Union

Established in 1998 Companies House Number 159CUS

Was Registered in 2005 as a merger of 3 smaller credit unions in Erskine whose registration is unknown, Renfrew credit union registered in 1991 66CUS and Linwood credit union registered in 1988 25 CUS all three had served the local community to the best of the ability of volunteers for over 30 years.

With this merger the aim of the credit union is to encourage members to save regularly, to provide low cost loans to members, to encourage careful money management among members and to develop a sense of co-operation and community.

A Website was designed to promote the benefits of Credit Unions to the people of Renfrewshire. The fresh, easy-to-use website signposts people to credit unions throughout Renfrewshire, lists all their services and highlights the many benefits of saving and borrowing affordably.

Gleniffer Credit Union, Johnstone Credit Union, Renfrewshire-Wide Credit Union, Scot west Credit Union and White Cart Credit Union have collaborated on the development of the website to ensure that the Renfrewshire community can make an informed choice on the best credit union for their needs.

The website is funded by Renfrewshire Council who have committed up to £500,000 of funding to support credit union development in Renfrewshire as a key strand of their Tackling Poverty strategy. This substantial investment has been used in a variety of initiatives to tackle the rise in high cost lending and to provide access to a wider range of ethical and affordable financial products for the Renfrewshire community.

This Credit Union is now on social media as Right Way Credit Union as discovered in 2020 by BCUHS
