Just Credit Union launches new website


Just Credit Union, the not-for-profit community bank for Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, has launched a new website to increase awareness of the financial services it offers local people who live or work in the area. Amongst the impressive range of user-friendly features the site now offers is the opportunity for both new and existing customers to apply for loans online 24/7.

Visitors to the new site at www.justcreditunion.org can get information about Just Credit Union’s range of secure savings accounts and affordable loan products and use the handy loan calculators to instantly see the repayment amounts for borrowing up to £15,000 over any period from 3 months up to 5 years.  There’s also an online budget planner to help customers see where their money is going and make the right decisions to take control of their finances.

Just Credit Union’s Chief Officer, Karen Farrow, told us “We’re really pleased with the look and functionality of the new site which is definitely a vast improvement on the previous one. We recognise the importance of making it as easy as possible for customers to get the information they need to make an informed decision about the type of saving or loan product they should choose.”

“Allowing customers to open an account and apply for loans online, whenever and wherever is most convenient to them, is something we have been planning to offer for some time. Our new website enables customers to do all that and more and its responsive design automatically optimises the view for any device from mobile phone to tablet to desktop.”

Other features include details about Just Credit Union’s weekly community branches throughout Shropshire, a news section to keep customers up-to-date with what’s happening as well as links to facebook and twitter for all the latest social media updates. Customers can also sign up to receive a regular copy of Just’s newsletter with information about upcoming events, offers, financial tips and prize draws.

Karen added, “Just Credit Union offers a very different banking experience to its competitors and now we have a website that doesn’t just tell people, but shows them how we are different. We’re excited for existing and potential members to explore the new website and see everything that Just Credit Union has to offer and how we can help to make their financial goals more accessible.”

“The launch of the new website was timed to coincide with International Credit Union Day on 19th October. This year’s theme “Dreams thrive here” fitted perfectly with our mission to provide a local, ethical professional financial service that benefits everyone in the community.”

Established in 2001 Just Credit Union has lent over £10 million in low cost loans to its members. They were recently awarded The Fairbanking Foundation’s highest 5 star rating for their loan products and have been shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s Social Enterprise Awards in recognition of their work in providing ethical financial services to the local community.
