We are passionate about helping people to make a difference in their lives, their families and neighbourhoods. We work in partnership with South Gloucestershire CVS and The Chase and Kingsforest to support the local voluntary and community sector across South Gloucestershire and run a range of social enterprises.  Our ultimate goal is for people and communities to reach their full potential.  We work through the pathways of: 

  • learning and development so that people have the confidence and skills to be responsible for their own futures
  • health and well being so that people have improved physical, emotional and health leading to increased self esteem and confidence
  • sustainable communities with people working together to influence change

Dont just take our word for it ..  see what people say about us in their own words   here

News New Credit Union Opening

 

 

 

 

 

 

Credit Union – Opening soon in Filton

 

Wanted - Service Point Volunteers for Credit Union outreach point in Filton

 

Purpose of Role

 

Service Point Volunteers will offer information about Bristol Credit Union and will assist with the opening of accounts and making applications for existing and potential members.

This is a chance to be part of a dynamic team, learning transferable skills for the workplace and giving something back to your community whilst helping others. Flexible as agreed. Usually 2 hours per week/fortnight.

 

Bristol Credit Union (BCU) is your community bank, helping local people make the most of their money. We offer access to quality banking services with affordable loans, competitive savings accounts and current accounts.

BCU is not for profit and owned by our members – that’s everyone who saves, borrows or banks with us. When people put their savings with us we are able to help other people with loans. Any profit we make gets recycled back into helping local people. So the more people who become members, the more people we can help out. We offer a variety of loan products to suit your circumstances and our interest rates are competitive for small and larger amounts; there are no application fees or early repayment charges. Once you’re a member you can apply for up to £15,000, subject to status.

BCU is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority
