Giving Credit: Our Work on the Credit Union Expansion in Wakefield District

Nova has recently facilitated Leeds Credit Union with their expansion into Wakefield.

Working with Community Anchors across the district that provide Help at the Hub services, along with a Big Local Initiative in Knottingley, Leeds Credit Union is now operating in seven out reach branches that include:

  • Eastmoor Community Project at St Swithun's
  • St George's Lupset
  • Lightwaves Community Centre
  • Havercroft and Ryhill Community Learning Centre
  • St Marys Community Centre
  • Castleford Heritage Trust at Queens Mill
  • Warwick Ahead Big Local in Knottingley

The new provision will provide safe banking and credit services for local communities, building up credit ratings and providing a vital alternative to doorstep and other informal lending and ensuring peace of mind.

“We very much value the support of Nova in facilitating partners to host this valuable service in Wakefield, and look forward to developing more coverage across the district” - Greg Potter, Head of Marketing and Member Experience at LCU

Leeds Credit Union are looking at a base in the south of the district. If you’d be interested in hosting a branch, get in touch with our Nova Adviser, Mike at mike.romano@nova-wd.org.uk
