Glasgow Credit Union launches Financial Wellbeing Hub

Glasgow Credit Union has launched their Financial Wellbeing Hub, a series of guides, tools and tips designed to help people to make the most of their money.

The new resource covers topics such as budgeting, savings, loans, mortgages, and links to debt advice websites, and much of the content is tailored specifically for people living or working within the Greater Glasgow, G postcode area.

As the largest and most successful credit union in the UK, and with over 30 years’ experience of helping Glaswegians manage their money, Glasgow Credit Union is uniquely placed to help people become more financially resilient. As well as the new Financial Wellbeing Hub, the credit union also offers a range of savings accounts, loan products and mortgages. 

David Ross, Chief Executive of Glasgow Credit Union said “The credit union ethos has always been to encourage good money management – be that in the form of encouraging regular savings, sensible borrowing or financial education. With the financial impact of the Coronavirus pandemic being felt by everyone, that ethos has never been more important.”

The Financial Wellbeing Hub pulls together a lot of the work the credit union has been doing over the years to help members and the wider community to stay financially resilient, and new resources will be added regularly.

David continues “We’ve got some exciting new developments for the Hub in the pipeline, including some really innovative partnerships with Glasgow based companies that will be able to offer our members bespoke one-to-one advice. Our hope is that people will use our Financial Wellbeing Hub to help them stay in control of their finances no matter what the future holds.”

The launch of the Financial Wellbeing Hub coincides with Debt Awareness Week 2021 organised by debt charity, StepChange. The annual awareness campaign aims to open up the conversation around debt and encourage people who need help or advice to seek it.

Glasgow Credit Union is open to everyone who lives or works in the G postcode area. Glasgow based employers can join the credit union’s Employer Partner scheme, a free employee benefit which allows their staff to become members of the credit union and save via their payroll. Employer Partners can also access additional free financial wellbeing resources for their employees, such as online workshops.
