Credit Union News – March 2014

The first two credit unions – Wimbledon Credit Union and Hornsey Co-operative Credit Union – both started in April 1964, and the magazine includes an interview with two of the founder members of Hornsey Co-operative Credit Union. There is a timeline showing how the credit union sector in Britain has developed over the last 50 years and an interview with credit union activist Martin Logan, who has played a key role in helping to record the history of credit unions in this country.

There is also a look ahead to the future, with a feature on some of the “new kids on the block”: Polish Credit Union UK, Churches Mutual Credit Union and Retail Credit Union are three new credit unions taking the sector forward.

The magazine goes out to ABCUL members and many others with an interest in the credit union sector and is published three times a year. A copy of the latest issue can be downloaded from our publications page.

We’re pleased that the latest issue of Credit Union News, which we have been working on for our client ABCUL, has now been published.

The magazine, which goes out to ABCUL members and many others with an interest in the sector, is published three times a year. In this issue, we look at the support for credit unions from the Archbishop of Canterbury, which hit the headlines in the summer, and we talk to Rev Dr Malcolm Brown, Director of Mission and Public Affairs for the Church of England, who is leading the church’s work on this.

We also look at the work credit unions are doing to develop links with local authorities and we talk to Simon Blissett, Programme Director for the £38 million Credit Union Expansion Project, about the opportunities and challenges for the sector to deliver this project.
