My Community Bank Story

Its not about us, its about you.

Where it all started

My Community Bank grew out of a credit union founded in the 1970s called Brent Shrine Credit Union. From the very beginning, our founders set out with the same goal as we have today: to help improve the financial health of our members and our community. 

Today, we have become one of the UK’s biggest credit unions, serving communities across England, Scotland and Wales. We’re a mutual, which means that we’re owned by you, our members, and we work hard every day to do what’s right for our membership.

Our Goal

Fighting Financial Exploitation

My Community Bank was created with the goal of fighting “financial exploitation” – where those who need the money the most are often charged the highest prices by payday lenders, rent-to-own stores and doorstep lenders. My Community Bank wants to give those using these financial services another option. A fair, affordable option.
