Hastings and Rother Credit Union

We are a small but ambitious credit union with plans to upgrade our IT system and expand our membership to enable us to deliver our services to everyone in our common bond area of Hastings & Rother. We rely on volunteers to help us deliver our service and are looking for new volunteers who can spare a few hours a month, or on a one-off basis for the following roles: Compliance & Risk Management, Supervisory Committee Members and Board members.

For more information about us, or to apply to become a volunteer with us please visit our vacancies page  or contact our chair Richard Street or Senior Manager Dawn Poole at info@hrcu.org.uk or call 01424 202651.

Credit Unions are financial co-operatives owned and controlled by their members. All our members live and/or work in Hastings Borough or Rother District or provide services to those who do. 

Credit unions serve the local community so when you invest in your local credit union, you know your neighbours or colleagues are benefiting, not outside shareholders. You are not contributing to massive salaries and bonuses as much of the work is done by volunteers; we pay for just two part-timers.

In the UK, over 400 Credit Unions  provide financial services to over 400,000 members. Credit Unions are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.

As a member, you have an equal say in the running of the credit union with all other members.
