A safe, simple and affordable way to borrow

If you are looking for somewhere safe and reliable to borrow, Greenwich & Bexley Credit Union could be your answer. You can use your credit union account to pay for family holidays, home improvements, birthdays, weddings and much more.

The credit union is a not-for-profit co-operative set up to support local people. It has been running for over 20 years and has helped over 15,000 local residents and employees, and has loaned more than £40 million. To become a member, you must live or work in Greenwich or Bexley and be able to save a minimum of £10 per month.

Most members who want to borrow, apply for a Saver Loan after they have been saving regularly for 3 months. But you can also apply for a Welcome Loan (£300 to £1,000) at the same time you join, if you are in permanent employment or if you decide to have your Child Benefit payments transferred directly to the credit union.

Credit union loans come with free life insurance (terms and conditions apply), are charged at affordable rates and have no additional hidden costs or charges. All your savings are fully protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Greenwich & Bexley Credit Union is authorised and regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority. FRN 213921.
