The Scottish Credit Union Charter

We call on all Members elected to the Scottish Parliament in 2016 to help make Scotland a Credit Union Nation by:

  • Encouraging all employers to partner with credit unions to make saving and repaying loans via payroll deduction a standard workplace benefit for people across Scotland

  • Improving financial health by encouraging regular saving and responsible borrowing

  • Establishing a credit union champion in every primary and secondary school across Scotland who will lead that school’s partnership with a local credit union and facilitate pupils’ involvement

  • Advocating the teaching of credit union and co-operative models in schools, colleges and universities

  • Supporting the capacity of credit unions to provide an ethical alternative as part of a sustainable, responsible financial services sector

  • Promoting credit unions as providers of affordable credit for people from all walks of life.
