A New Way To Save, A New Way To Borrow.

If you want to save, or borrow money, you can always rely on Barrow Credit Union to do right by you!

They’re not an impersonal High Street Bank; they’re run by local people for local people. Barrow Credit Union covers both Barrow Borough and the whole of South Lakeland.

Barrow Credit Union provide local people with a safe and convenient place to save. Whether you want to save for something special or for those unexpected expenses, they have an account that's suitable for you.

All the money that you save in the Credit Union benefits your community. Members deposits allow them to offer responsible and affordable loans to their members who need to borrow. The interest charged on these loans helps to pay their running costs and build up reserves.

Their range of loans are fantastic too, you may have a big occasion on the horizon, your car might break down at the worst possible moment, or you long for a well -deserved holiday but you just can’t afford it. You may want to get married but are worried that your big day is going to give you a big headache!

Whatever the reason, Barrow Credit Union has the right loan for you, even if you have a poor credit rating!
