A better way to support our work is to open one of our debit card current accounts and, when considering a loan, to take one from us.

Alongside our other plans to boost income and control costs, we are confident these changes will deliver a strong and sustainable credit union.

The credit union was set up in Tower Hamlets in 2000. Now, following our 20th anniversary, we want to work with members to ensure another 20 years of improving financial resilience and supporting the alleviation of poverty in east London. Thank you for your support.
