What is a Credit Union?
Credit Unions are not-for-profit financial co-operatives, owned by, and run for, their members, based on the ideal of ‘people helping people’.
All UK credit unions are fully regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority, and as members of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, you can be confident your money is in safe hands.
Very pleased with the interest rate and the fantastic service.
Our rates reflect the true cost of providing your loan, and the level of risk. That means we’re usually cheaper than online lenders and high street loans and overdrafts.
Your application will be considered by a real person who will look at the big picture and make a decision based on your ability to repay.
Save as You Borrow
We encourage you to pay a little extra on top of your repayments each month. This makes it easy to build savings as you repay.
No Hidden Fees
No ‘arrangement fees’, hidden costs or early repayment penalties, just the agreed monthly repayments including interest.

If you work for one of the employers below, savings and loan repayments will be deducted straight from your pay.

How We’re Different
A Credit Union
We’re a community bank based in South London, founded in 1982 and owned by our members. We’ve been working with NHS staff for over 25 years.
Working for You
Our mission is to help everyone in our community get into financial shape—not to make a profit. So you can trust us to act in your best interests.
We work with London Ambulance Service to deduct a regular amount from your pay, making it easy to build savings or make repayments without hassle or worry.
Every penny we make is paid back to our members as a dividend, used to support our community work, or reinvested in our services.
Fully Licensed and Protected
Eligible customer deposits with London Mutual Credit Union are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme. Any deposits that customers hold above the £85,000 limit are not covered.
