This category lists Credit Unions in the United Kingdom. A credit union is a financial institution built on the cooperative model, which means it is owned by its members instead of being a publicly traded company, such as a bank.
The United Kingdom also harbours institutions which are similar in history, structure and purpose, called Building Societies. They were originally conceived to allow their members to save towards buying or building housing, but now offer savings accounts and other services. See Building Societies for a list of these institutions.
