Members save with us.
We pool together these savings to offer our members affordable, low-cost loans.
We generate income from the interest made on the loans.
We use that income to cover business running costs.
Any surplus after that is given back to you in the form of a dividend which is agreed at the Annual General Meeting.
You are an owner.
As a member you become a joint owner of Darlington Credit Union. You have a say on how your credit union is being operated.
We share success together.
With no majority shareholders, there are no individuals who reap all the benefits. Instead, benefits are shared out equally to all our members.
