The strength of the Scottish League of Credit Unions is in supporting community-focused Credit Unions, at whatever stage of development is deemed appropriate by the members of each Credit Union. We recognise and respect the different needs and aspirations of individual Credit Unions and we do not seek to impose any particular model or developmental path.


Our core purpose is to ensure that our member Credit Unions become and remain: Compliant → Sustainable → Ethical


We do this by focusing on the key themes of:

  • Education through on-site & group training sessions using ready-made materials or bespoke solutions
  • Advice on legislative, regulatory, compliance and financial issues and considerations
  • Networking by encouraging formal & informal contact between member CU’s, their volunteers and staff
  • Facilitation where member CU’s wish to co-ordinate or work together to achieve common goals
  • Representation to the Regulator, local, Scottish & UK Government, other CU organisations and the media
  • Promotion by developing branding & advertising material templates that can be customised by CU’s
