People helping people, plain and simple
Lanarkshire Credit Union was founded in November of 1991, back then known as Blantyre Credit Union. Over the past 25 years we've built up and adult membership of 14,900 and over 8100 junior savers. Our members hold over £14,200,000 in savings and over £6,300,000 in loans.
A credit union is a financial co-operative owned by its members. It is a not-for-profit organisation which offers a savings and low cost loans service to its members. Credit unions basically work by members saving together to create a pool of money from which low cost loans are made. 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
- To develop a sense of co-operation and community
We've done a lot with our time, we're constantly evolving and bring our services to more members than ever, why not join us?
We're an accredited Living Wage Employer
At Lanarkshire Credit Union we're proud to be a Living Wage Employer, we're one of a growing list of organisations across Scotland to be officially accredited by the Scottish Living Wage Accreditation initiative.
Being accredited as a Living Wage Employer also reflects the core values of the Credit Union and makes a positive contribution to society. Not only is paying employees a wage that supports a decent standard of living a responsible thing to do, but there are also clear business, societal and economic benefits in doing so.
