As you boldly embrace all of life's opportunities and challenges, we're here to help - every step of the way.

A variety of products and services

We'll suggest the best fit from our full range of products and services and we'll do it with a smile.


We have a social conscience and actively support the community in which we live, work and play.

We have a great story

The credit union was founded by Bedford resident and Manchester Firefighter, John Walsh, in 1949. Throughout our history we have been immersed in the Greater Manchester culture.

People helping people

The credit union motto, People Helping People, is at the heart of what we do every day.
