Unify Credit Union
Credit Unions are community savings and loans co-operatives, owned and run by the members. Membership is available to anyone who lives or works within Wigan Borough and surrounding area.

Members save with Unify and those savings are then used to give low cost loans to members.

Any profits at the end of the financial year are given back to the members in the form of an annual dividend. In 2010 the dividend was 2.5%. All members receive the same dividend and junior members are paid interest on savings equal to the adult members’ dividend.




Although based in Wigan, this credit union have expanded to cover Chorley and Leyland.

Info on credit unions can be found here: http://www.abcul.org/home

It was something that I was looking at years ago but, like most things, fell on deaf ears when mentioned to SRBC.

Was thinking on the lines of instead of investing in Iceland 'we' actually invested in 'ourselves'.

Daft thing is I think it partly exists now in the form of loyalty schemes.

Bring on the Leyland pound lol
