The Barrow & District Credit Union is an ethical, not for profit, financial co-operative which serves our members in Barrow and South West Cumbria with savings and loans facilities.

We offer an ethical alternative to high-profit lenders and a lifeline to those who struggle to access financial services. Our aim is to stamp out loan-sharks and doorstep lenders in our area by offering affordable and manageable credit that works for you. We are owned by our members, backed by our community, and have no external shareholders to pay.


Our lifeblood is our members and our volunteers. If you would like to join us – or assist in the running of Barrow & District Credit Union – please get in touch.
