Bristol Credit Union
Great Western Credit Union (or GWCU) is here to help local people make the most of their money, by giving them access to affordable loans and competitive savings accounts. When people place their savings with us, we’re able to help other local people with loans. And because we’re here to support your community, all the money stays in the local economy. We lend out money at fair and affordable rates of interest, saving members, many at risk of financial exclusion, from turning to high cost doorstep or payday lenders. We also offer savers a decent return on their savings, plus the knowledge that they are investing in their local area. We’re owned by our members, that’s everyone who saves, borrows or banks with us. We don’t have shareholders who take the profits, therefore any profit we make gets recycled back into the credit union, allowing us to help more local people. So the more people who become members, the more people we can help out.
