A qualified representatives will available for a drop-in service between 13:00 and 15:30. Please email Caroline Askin if you would prefer to make an appointment firstname.lastname@example.org
The credit union service is available to residents, community groups and businesses across Rural Kirklees. This includes the Holme Valley, Colne Valley, as well as Kirkburton and Denby Dale Parish Council areas.
We hope that this service will eventually see the credit union open everyday in Shepley.

We are working to identify and take advantage of, CSR (corporate social responsibility) opportunities too.
South Yorkshire Credit Union Ltd is democratically run as a savings and loan co-operative owned and controlled by its members. The organisation encourages people to become members regardless of their beliefs, gender and abilities. Some of these members may have found borrowing difficult in the past from high street lenders because of a perceived stigma about certain local population areas or because they are unemployed or living on a low wage.
The South Yorkshire Credit Union is committed to the alleviation of poverty within the community to give to the economic regeneration and sustainability of the local community.
The South Yorkshire Credit Union was voted top credit union in UK and Ireland 2015. Please visit its website for additional information at www.sycu.co.uk
