Where saving is simple and borrowing is safe.
Credit Unions are Financial Co-operatives, owned and run by their members with a
self-help ethos that enables members to save and borrow money to suit their own personal budget and circumstances
We offer straightforward savings accounts and affordable loans to our members. Membership costs just £2, and includes life insurance and loan protection.
Good reasons to join West Norwich Credit Union
Unfortunately, due to being unable to secure funding for the service, the Money, Advice and Budgeting service (MABS) has had to close at the end of March 2018.
West Norwich Credit Union would like to thank all the staff who have operated the service over the last 9 years.
WNCU is still open for business, and has recently awarded a 1% dividend to all our members, and will continue to offer safe savings and affordable loans to our members.
1% Annual Dividend
We have just awarded a 1% dividend to members on their savings for the year ending 30 September 2017.
That’s a good return when compared to other instant-access saving accounts.
Free £25 To New Members
Save regularly for three months and we will reward you with a £25 bonus!
We have teamed up with The England Illegal Money Lending Team to promote saving and make residents aware of the safer ways for borrowing money.
A joint initiative will see the team use proceeds of crime money, confiscated from convicted loan sharks, to sponsor new credit union accounts.
The first 50 new members to join and save regularly for the first three months, will receive a £25 savings boost directly into their credit union account.
Ian Leather, President of West Norwich Credit Union said “We are a much safer alternative to using a loan shark”.
“We urge residents to take up this opportunity to sign up and start saving. Even if you don’t want to borrow, it’s a great way to build up funds for when you need them in the future.”
Contact us for more information.
The offer is available for members who join between now and the end of January 2019.
To report a loan shark call the 24/7 confidential hotline 0300 555 2222.
