Following recent legislative
changes, credit unions can now provide services to community groups, social
enterprises and businesses; helping organisations that need financial services
and attracting investment into communities.
The following are some of the organisations that might like to consider joining.
If you are located within, or provide services to, residents of Hastings Borough or Rother District, you are eligible to join. Your money would be helping the local community and enable you to
take out a small loan to help your activities.
To open an account with
Hastings & Rother Credit Union, complete the form below with details of
your organisation and at least two officers who are cheque signatories and
return it to us. You will also need to provide a copy of the organisation’s
constitution, charity registration or other evidence of its existence as well
as the usual ID for two officers [explained here]. If the officer is already a member of the credit union, they do not need to provide ID but should provide their membership number.
