Credit Union

Credit Union

Stockport Credit Union is a social enterprise financial co-operative that provides affordable financial services to people who live or work in Stockport, helping the members help each other and become financial independent through education.

Joining the Credit Union is a great way for local people and organisations to increase the supply of affordable credit in the community and to help our community become more financially independent and stable. Any surplus made is given back to members in the form of a dividend or reinvested in the organisation to improve our service provision.

  • Savings

    Stockport Credit Union offers savings accounts to people living or working in Stockport. Saving regularly, even just a small amount, helps you to manage if you get unexpected costs, or to plan for expected spending, such as school uniform, a holiday or a big purchase.

    It costs just £1.20 to join the credit union and you can start your savings with as little as £1. We also have Young Saver accounts, Share Account and Christmas Saver accounts that keep your money away safely - in fact you can save for any special occasion or event.

  • Loans

    As a social enterprise owned by its members, Stockport Credit Union can offer affordable loans that have our members’ interests at heart. As a co-operative working for the members, we can be more flexible than a bank in deciding whether to lend.

    All loans offered are subject to status and eligibility criteria, including an affordability check and credit references. The interest rates offered will depend on your own circumstances, and high value loans may require higher credit ratings.

    While you have a credit union loan, you must continue to pay at least £1 weekly or £5 monthly into your savings.
