The Welsh Forum of the Association of British Credit Unions Ltd (ABCUL) is a headline sponsor of this year’s Credit Unions of Wales Awards.

The awards will celebrate the contribution made by those volunteers, members, schools and partner employers to the ongoing success of the credit union movement in Wales.

ABCUL is the main trade association for credit unions in Britain, governed by volunteer directors who represent their members to governments, policy makers and the media.

The Association represents the majority of the British credit unions on every key measure and provides a full range of advice, training and development services to help them grow as sustainable, thriving financial co-operatives.

Sara Burch, Chairperson of the ABCUL Cymru Forum said: “The Association of British Credit Unions is the largest trade body representing Credit Unions in the UK, and represents the UK at the World Council of Credit Unions.

“All over the world, Credit Unions are there building communities and helping people manage their finances and improve their future.

“The ABCUL Cymru forum is delighted to sponsor the awards as a way to celebrate all that’s great about Credit Unions in Wales.

“The awards showcase the different ways in which Welsh Credit Unions are making a real difference in the communities we serve and are a chance to say thank you to our partners and volunteers- we couldn’t do it without them.”

Supported by the Welsh Government, the Credit Unions of Wales Awards will take place at The Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay on Thursday October 18 at 11.30am.

It coincides with International Credit Union Day, which celebrates the spirit of the global movement and sees credit unions from across Wales combine to honour the legacy of community working.
