I had not had any experience of credit unions as such. So when I first visited the branch on the North End Road I was delighted, amazed and so please at the way my affairs were handled. I took out a loan to buy my new glasses - it could not have been easier! Cheryl, Krisstal and Evette are all absolutely wonderful and charming.

I’ve found H&F Credit Union a great experience. I got a small loan and paid it back in less than 6 months. I’m saving some of my benefits and I am really surprised how quickly it adds up! The loans are easy to understand and the staff make everything simple and straightforward. I’m really glad I have the credit union ‘cos in the past it cost me so much to borrow and now I know I can get the amounts I need in a way that doesn’t affect me negatively. I really recommend it.

I like the staff, they are such a lovely , friendly bunch. Forms are explained properly and a lot of time is taken with customers. Customer care means a lot to me and they have got it 100%....I'm telling all my friends as I feel they have helped me a lot financially.
