Our principal partner and supporter is the Welsh Government. Since 2000 it has committed to supporting Credit Unions in Wales. For more information go to the Welsh Government site.
We are also fortunate in having the support of local partners in both counties.
Key partnerships include Torfaen County Borough Council (TCBC) and Monmouthshire County Council who allow us to operate from their premises, encourage schools to open savings clubs, promote payroll deduction to their staff and membership to local residents.
In Torfaen, members are able to pay cash at TCBC Cash offices. We continue to take part in Welfare Rights and Financial Inclusion Partnerships in both counties. In Torfaen we now have a Communities First Finance worker hosted with the Credit Union who provides valuable budgeting and benefits and financial advice service for members and other residents.
We greatly benefit from the support of Melin Homes, Monmouthshire Housing Association, Bron Afon Community Housing and Charter Housing in promoting credit union membership to their tenants, and promoting payroll membership to staff.
We also work with a range of community and voluntary organisations across Torfaen and Monmouthshire.
Particular thanks are due to the Methodist Church in Llanyravon, TRAC2, CoStar, and Thornhill Community Centre.
