Central Liverpool Credit Union Celebrates 35 Years and Unveils Rebrand to Central Credit Union

Central Liverpool Credit Union is marking a momentous occasion this year; celebrating 35 years of service to its community alongside a significant rebrand and name change.

Thursday the 28th of February marked 35 years since the credit union was founded. The organisation has also taken this occasion as an opportunity to officially announce its name change from ‘Central Liverpool Credit Union’ to ‘Central Credit Union’ reflecting their growth and expanded common bond.

Founded on the principles of financial inclusion and community empowerment, after three and a half decades of supporting the financial well-being of individuals and families within the Liverpool City Region, the credit union has seen remarkable success and growth. To empower even more communities, the organisation is expanding its common bond beyond the Liverpool City Region and will now cover West Lancashire, Wigan, Warrington, Chester, and Cheshire West.

This means residents across these areas can now become members and benefit from the unique advantages of belonging to a credit union, including competitive rates, ethical banking practices, and a focus on financial inclusion and wellbeing.

Eileen Halligan, CEO at Central Credit Union says,

“Our 35th anniversary is a significant milestone,”

“It’s a testament to the dedication of our team and the trust placed in us by our members. This re brand and expanded common bond signify our commitment to empowering even more communities across the North West. We’re excited to welcome new members and continue providing tailored financial solutions that prioritise their wellbeing the credit union slogan “PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE” has never been more pertinent”

To mark this exciting new chapter, Central Credit Union will be hosting two celebratory events:

Thursday 28th February 2024: A small gathering held at their Head Office on Park Street, Liverpool, for staff, volunteers, members and friends to celebrate the anniversary and launch the new name.

Friday 20th September 2024: An invitation-only celebration at the Titanic Hotel Liverpool, bringing together members, partners, and stakeholders to toast to the continued success and growth of Central Credit Union.

To further celebrate and give back to members, every month from February to September the credit union will be running a prize draw. Each month one adult member and one junior member will be in with the chance of winning £1,000 and £100. Members do not need to sign up for this, as the credit union will make the draw randomly from their membership database.

Central Credit Union is committed to fostering financial inclusion and building stronger communities. This name change and common bond expansion mark a significant step forward in achieving this goal.
