Brecon and District Credit Union wish to support local initiatives and to promote financial literacy and resilience in Powys.
We do this in many ways, for instance by working with local primary and secondary schools on projects to improve financial literacy. Our volunteers try to teach young people how to be money-wise.
We also attend regional meetings on poverty prevention, and work with other agencies to help those in need.
Brecon & District Credit Union also offer accounts to community groups and smaller businesses in the area. Some of our members are the local allotments and Plan Brecon.
Furthermore, we will often be able to offer financial services to marginalised people in our community. This includes those who have never held a bank account before.
