“The sharp rise in people joining credit unions is encouraging, as is the increasing number of private and public businesses. “We are also working hard to raise the profile of credit unions, which provide ethical and affordable financial services for those who need them.” – Scotland’s First Minister – Nicola Sturgeon, 21st December 2017
“The good thing about Payroll deduction is once the first payment comes off you tend to forget about it. Before you know it you’ve got savings you wouldn’t normally have had. You can apply for a loan by filling out a form or withdraw your saving by phone. I have been with the Credit Union for 9 years and would not hesitate recommending it.” – Stan Pearson – SCVO Credit Union Member (Crossreach Community Care)
