Northern Money can help you find details of your local credit union, using a simple postcode search. Credit unions offer great savings products and low-cost loans to members.
Just type your home or work postcode into the search box above to get a list of your local credit unions, links to their websites and a summary of the main products available. The Northern Money website will also list your local Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs). CDFIs offer affordable loans, but you don't need to be a member of a credit union to apply.
What is a Credit Union?
A credit union is a financial co-operative which offers safe savings accounts and low-cost loans to members. Credit unions are regulated by the Financial Services Authority (the UK's financial services regulator).
