Warrington Credit Union merges to provide customers with new online services

Warrington Credit Union has joined forces with Wigan-based Unify Credit Union to offer customers online services - making saving and affordable loans products more accessible to support people to manage their money.

Warrington Credit Union merges to provide customers with new online services

"Warrington Credit Union already has a strong membership base of 1500 in the town, and we can't wait to build on this and offer quicker, easier ways for more people to manage their money."
Angela Fishwick, chief executive of Unify,

Warrington Credit Union has merged with a Wigan credit union to offer customers new online financial services, text updates, and a larger range of affordable loans.

The credit union has joined forces with Unify Credit Union, which already operates in Wigan, Chorley, South Ribble and Skelmersdale, to provide enhanced services but its headquarters at St Margaret’s Community Centre will remain open.

Graham Fielding, chairman of Warrington Credit Union, said: “Over the past 12 years, we have provided ethical and affordable financial services to thousands of people in the town.

“With the strength of Unify Credit Union’s online offer which will enable our members to request withdrawals, apply for loans and check their balances, we’re hopeful that many more Warrington residents will be able to access financial services from an organisation that genuinely cares about helping them take control of their money matters.”

Credit Unions are a financial co-operative, meaning any person who saves and borrows with them becomes a ‘member’. Members each have an equal share of the credit union and the profits that it makes - meaning money stays within the local area. 

Angela Fishwick, chief executive of Unify Credit Union, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer our services in Warrington at a time when affordable loans and easy ways to save are more important than ever.

“Warrington Credit Union already has a strong membership base of 1500 in the town, and we can’t wait to build on this and offer quicker, easier ways for more people to manage their money with their local credit union.”
