What happened back in 1998?


In 1998, classified ads didn’t have websites or email addresses. They had phone numbers for contacting people and quite a lot of them asked to be contacted by writing.newspaper






Bi-metallic £2 coins were put into circulation. Although they were legal, these coins had never been commonly used before.2pounds


A drunk masked man was found wandering in Chesterfield Police headquarters. He claimed that he was doing what the SAS do.drunk man small

Mobile Phones were like this: It was as thick as your big toe!




Google was founded. They became the most popular company in the world, and the word ‘Google’ was added to Oxford English dictionary in 2006.Google



And …    

A group of visionaries got together, raised the necessary funds and founded Chesterfield & North East Derbyshire Credit Union. We had fewer than 100 members in 1998. Twenty one years later, in 2019, we have over 5,200 members and still growing.
Thank you, our members and staff, for your continued support. We wouldn’t have come this far without you.

A safe place to save and borrow.

What is a Credit Union?

A Credit Union is a responsible alternative source of savings and affordable loans. Each is run for the benefit of Its members, with no profits going to external shareholders.


Save and Borrow as you earn

Join our Credit Union Payroll Scheme and save a little every payday which will soon add up to a tidy sum. Plus when you need a loan with flexible, affordable repayments, all you need to do is ask. High interest rate payday lender rates are a thing of the past.

If all that sounds like common sense with money, that’s exactly what it is. Joining is simple, so why wait? Join today and start saving tomorrow.

We are regulated by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme so your money is protected up to £85,000 per individual.

Best of all, as a member you’ll be able to apply for loans with flexible terms and repayments at affordable interest rates.

So Simple

You Can Still Apply for a Loan Even If You Don’t Receive Any Child Benefit

Even if you don't receive any child benefit, you can still apply for a low interest loan from us. However, if you are a new member, you will need to save with us for a minimum of 8 weeks before you can apply for one.

Two Types of Loan We Offer to our New Members

First of all, please note: To be able to apply for any type of loan from us, you will need to be a member. If you want to join us, please contact us for details.

We have two types of loan available for our new members: Family Loan and Saver Loan.

Family Loan

If you receive child benefit, you can apply for a loan up to £500 under our Family Loan Scheme. The amount you can borrow will depend on assessments by one of our loan officers.

Saver Loan

If you don’t receive any child benefit, you can apply for a Saver Loan. However, this loan may not be available if you have recently joined us. You will need to have saved with us for at least 8 weeks before you can be considered for this type of loan. After that, you may be able to borrow three times your savings depending on our assessments.
