Coronavirus – Our Business Continuity Plan

Our Branch is open to the public between the hours of 11am and 2pm, Monday to Friday. 

Telephone support Monday - Friday 9.00-16.00

We ask our members to treat our staff and other customers with respect and adhere to the current guidance by wearing a face covering and maintaining social distancing.

Our customers’ continuation of service is at the forefront of our business plan.

Darlington Credit Union is monitoring the evolving news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the guidance set out by Public Health England and the UK Government.

Our business continuity plan ensures we have measures in place to safeguard the continuity of services. In the eventuality we must close our offices at 41 Tubwell Row, Darlington we already have the infrastructure in place to enable our staff to work from home to continue to provide our usual email, online and telephony services. The only area affected will be our face-to-face operations and we are currently putting measures in place to ensure that as few of our members as possible are negatively impacted by the branch closure.
