Apply For Membership

Who Can Join?

Credit union membership is open to anyone, any age, living or working within the 'common bond' (the geographical area which is covered by each credit union in our case Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton & West Lancs). Everyone is welcome, it is easy to join and you receive a personal, friendly service.

To open an account for junior members, a birth certificate and proof of address is required. For adult membership, proof of identification and address is required to prove you are who you say you are and you live where you say you live.

Accounts are open to all age groups. Parents or grandparents can open an account for juniors on producing the relevant documentation, to include a Birth certificate or passport of the account holder.
