Sheffield Credit Union is a not-for-profit organisation, offering savings and loans across South Yorkshire. Established in 2004 in an amalgamation of a number of smaller Credit Unions in Sheffield, Sheffield Credit Union has grown to provide its members with safe savings products and low cost, affordable loans.
Owned by its members (anyone who has £1 or more in their savings account), Sheffield Credit Union is an ethical and affordable alternative for people living or working in South Yorkshire. Sheffield Credit Union was the winner of the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce “Business in the Community Award” 2015.
In 2016 Sheffield Credit Union merged with Rothersave Credit Union to offer services through branches in Sheffield and Rotherham. Sheffield Credit Union now employs around 20 paid staff, who are supported in their work by a similar number of committed volunteers, and has around 7,000 active members.
