Salford Credit Union in the Community

Serving our community…

We are in locations across Salford and North Manchester because we want as many people as possible to benefit from the services we provide.

We also work with a range of local partners who share our objectives to improve the financial well being of all local people.

Our Main Branch – Brotherton House, is close to shops and other services of Salford Shopping City and open five days a week.

PLEASE NOTE We are no longer opening later on Wednesdays. We may be able to offer appointments after 4pm if required but these will need to be arranged in advance and subject to availability.

We also have local service points: weekly collection and information points, largely run by Credit Union volunteers, at the venues listed below.

Email: send us an email at a time convenient to you to info@salfordcreditunion.com
