London Assembly Member Fiona Twycross joined London Mutual Credit Union in May 2013.Fiona’s Committee work at the Greater London Authority – she is currently leading an investigation in to the issues of food poverty in London on behalf of the London Assembly’s Health Committee – gives her a good insight into the problems facing many Londoners.

We are delighted to welcome her as a member and this is what she had to say about the credit union: ‘London Mutual does great work ensuring that local people have ethical financial products available to them including low interest pay day loans and competitive ISAs. It was exciting to hear about what they do and the new products they are planning for the future. In a few years’ time credit unions should have put the high interest lenders out of business and everyone joining credit unions and using their services will help this happen.’
