About Us

Derbyshire Community Bank is a credit union, a not-for-profit financial co-operative, owned and controlled by its members.

Financial Co-operative

As a financial cooperative we offer a full range of banking services, including transactional and savings accounts, as well as loans that carry a rate of interest that is highly competitive with other institutions.  We offer online banking, where Members are able to manage their money online, check balances, pay bills and apply for loans.

As an active member of the Credit Union, you are a voting member with a say in how it is run at our AGM.  Some of our members are elected to posts on the Credit Union board and take a more active role in shaping the way the business is operated.


Mission Statement

Our vision is for the Credit Union to offer high quality, fair and community focused financial services for all people living and working in Derbyshire.

The Credit Union will combat financial exclusion by working in partnership to provide sustainable access to safe savings and affordable loans for all those living or working in the County of Derbyshire.
