Governance and people

Who benefits

London Capital Credit Union strives to design services and products to meet the needs of all people, regardless of their background. Their services continue to be of the greatest help to those most often excluded from mainstream financial services. These are typically lone parents, people with long term health issues, having been made redundant, or having gone through a personal crisis.
