I opened my account in 2016 because I wanted to support my local credit union and invest in a fairer, social economy in Neath Port Talbot.  It's about strengthening our community and helping it to grow.  

I would encourage everyone to open an account with their local credit union and help the growth of responsible, locally accessible credit.” 

Michael Sheen, Member of Neath Port Talbot Credit Union

"If it was not for Neath Port Talbot Credit Union I do not think that I would have managed to save and pay for my wedding as well as a lovely 14 nights away in Mauritius for my honeymoon.

The staff in the office are really approachable and it’s been great getting to know the team.  They are always ready to offer help and advice."
