A warm welcome to all of you who have been redirected from the Hafren Credit Union website.
Some of you may be aware, the merger between Hafren Credit Union and North Wales Credit Union (NWCU) is now formally complete and so the hard work begins!
As a not-for-profit financial co-operative, our members’ interests are our highest priority and we believe the merger has created opportunities to work closer with our credit union colleagues in Brecon and Builth Wells to collectively improve our services to all of the people in Powys.
In due course we will be rebranding the merged Credit Unions as one entity, but our first priority is a seamless transition to ensure we maintain the highest quality service for all of our members.
As we harmonise, our Powys members will have access to a wider range of services and as a direct consequence of the merger, former Hafren Credit Union members will, with immediate effect, benefit from free life insurance of up to £5,000 on savings and up to £15,000 on all new loans.
Currently the Newtown office is open each weekday, apart from Wednesday, from 09.30 -13.00. We hope to be extending our opening hours to 5 days a week as soon as possible.
As ever, we will continue to listen to the needs of our members and focus on better understanding individual circumstances when it comes to loans decisions rather than relying on a statistical credit score or other automated risk tools.
Offering improved service and access was a key consideration in the merger and this will be an ongoing process, so please take some time to look at this the website or sign up to one of our social media channels to keep updated.
