Merger with Affinity Credit Union approved

Affinity Credit Union

1 April 2020

Following approval from the Financial Conduct Authority, we are very pleased to announce that the merger with Affinity Credit Union came into effect on the 1st of April 2020.

Given the restrictions imposed in response to the Coronavirus epidemic, operations of both credit unions will continue largely unchanged for the time being. Members of Eden and South Lakeland Credit Union will continue to access our services, including loan applications, through our Penrith office. This office is curently closed to members and the public but if you want more information, please email us at or phone on 01768 890065. Our Kendal office is currently closed but will re-open as soon as possible.

We look forward to being able to offer the wider range of Affinity loan products and services in due course. If you would like more information about these, please go to the Affinity website.

There will be some changes in our terms and conditions as we bring the two credit unions together and we will advise you of these as soon as practicable.

We look forward to developing and enhancing our services across Cumbria as a result of the merger.
