SOUTH WEST LONDON CREDIT UNION
A Savings & Loans Co-operative
For Anyone Living Or Working In Croydon, Merton or Sutton
A working group has been formed to seek ways of providing a credit union for anyone living
or working in Croydon, Merton or Sutton, based on the current Croydon Savers Credit Union, founded in 1999. The credit union is a not for profit financial co-operative committed to encouraging people to save rather than borrow, but also provides low cost loans in times of
need. The credit union provides a real alternative to loan sharks and a secure place to put
savings as a real ethical investment.
See www.CroydonSavers.co.uk for details of how the credit union works.
To extend services from Croydon to include Merton and Sutton we need to convince the
regulator, the Financial Services Authority (FSA), that there is a demand for the service. To
show support for the creation of the new credit union we are seeking as many people as
possible to complete this contact sheet to confirm your willingness to consider joining the
new credit union for South West London
If you support the creation of a new credit union for South West London and would consider becoming a member, please add your contact details below to show your support. This information will not be shared with anyone other than the FSA, and if we gain approval to extend the services we will write to you to advise you of this.
