Credit unions

Credit unions are not-for-profit organisations owned and controlled by their members, which offer savings and great value loans.

They are local, ethical and know what their members want.

Your money is also safe in a credit union, with savings up to £85,000 protected.

There are five credit unions in Renfrewshire of varying sizes and offering a variety of services:

  • Gleniffer Credit Union
  • Johnstone Credit Union
  • Renfrewshire-Wide Credit Union
  • Scotwest Credit Union
  • White Cart Credit Union

The new My Credit Union Renfrewshire website is your one-stop-shop for these credit unions. It is here to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice about joining a credit union and to signpost you to one that suits your needs.

Whether you are looking to save for your future; access ethical, affordable finance; or just find out a bit more about credit unions and what they can do for you, please have a look at our new website at
