About Stockport Credit Union

There have been credit unions in Stockport for nearly 30 years. The first credit union in Stockport was started in Brinnington in 1989, followed over the next 10 years by Houldsworth, Offerton and Werneth. They worked closely together for a number of years and when the Financial Services Authority became responsible for the regulation of credit unions it made sense to join forces. So in December 2005, Stockport Credit Union (SCU) was formed.

SCU is a not-for-profit financial co-operative that provides affordable financial services to people who live or work in Stockport.

Joining SCU is an important way for local people and organisations to increase the supply of affordable credit in the community and to help SCU to be sustainable. Any surplus SCU makes is given back to members in the form of a dividend.
