Swan Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. We exist for the benefit of our members who live and/or work in Milton Keynes, North Buckinghamshire or South East Oxfordshire (area of Thame).
Our mission is to provide our members with access to affordable loans and savings. The credit union, like banks and building societies, is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). Savers’ deposits are protected by the same Financial Services Compensation Scheme that covers banks and building societies
We pride ourselves on being different to high street banks. We are run and owned by all our members. Every member is a shareholder in the company and has the opportunity to vote in decisions on how we are run at an Annual General Meeting.
We are committed to doing business in a way that contributes to the local community, and funds are invested ethically.
In October 2013 we had over 1,000 members and were looking after members’ savings of £360,000.
We began operations in 2006, serving the population of Milton Keynes under the name of Milton Keynes Credit Union. In October 2013 we welcomed Aylesbury Vale Credit Union joining us and changed our name to Swan Credit Union to reflect the new geographical area served. We operate three community banks: MK Community Bank (Milton Keynes), Aylesbury Communty Bank (Aylesbury Vale District) and Thame Community Bank (South East Oxfordshire).
In 2012/13 the two separate CUs helped our members by issuing more than 190 new loans to a value of over £190,000. If we had not been there to help, most of our members would have had to go to expensive high interest lenders.
