Volunteering with Stockport Credit Union gives you a chance to become more involved in your local community. It also provides you with a sense of wellbeing.
Stockport Credit Union depends entirely on volunteers. Over 70 people currently volunteer; thanks to their volunteering Stockport Credit Union can continue to support over 2,500 members. Our volunteers are based in Stockport town centre and in Stockport wards including Adswood, Bredbury, Bridgehall, Brinnington, Offerton, Reddish and Woodley.
Marketing volunteers: Can you spare a couple of hours to leaflet around Stockport, or man a stand? (a calendar of events is here)
Customer Service volunteers: Can you volunteer on a Stockport collection point for a couple of hours twice a month? (or more if you want). Could you chat with new members?
PR volunteers: If you are good at writing articles and know about dealing with the press, we need you!
Finance, HR, Admin volunteers: If you have specialist skills in finance, HR, admin or other areas, Stockport Credit Union can use your skills!

'When I retired I wanted to find volunteer work in Stockport. Just by chance I heard that Stockport Credit Union required volunteers, so I applied. The staff and other volunteers welcomed me in an open and friendly way, and the past 4 years have flown by. I have made some good friendships as well as giving back to the local community'.
'I have skills and knowledge which I don't use in my current job but would like to put to good use to benefit my local community. I have lived in Stockport for three years ... and I strongly feel that now is the time to put something back.'
'As a retired person, it feels really good to be active and to have a routine volunteering at Stockport Credit Union. I feel my contribution is valued and I would thoroughly recommend it!'
