Bristol Credit Union is a financial services co-operative providing community banking for the people and organisations of Bristol and Bath and the surrounding Avon County area.
Bristol Credit Union is owned and controlled by its customers - who are members - and exists solely to provide services for them. The Credit Union takes deposits from its members, who must live in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath & North East Somerset or North Somerset, and lends the money on at competitive rates to fellow members. So savings built up in the community stay in the community. Read more
During the year, savings balances increased by 34% to £4.95 million, and loan balances increased by 25% to £2.571 million.
Over £2.5 million of new loans were made made to the community in 2014 (2013: £2.0 million).
Ten years ago Elaine had run up debts of over £4,500 on store cards. Elaine managed to transfer all of her debt to the credit union by taking out a series of small loans and ended up being charged much less interest. "Joining the Bristol Credit Union is the best thing anyone can do. They got us through."
