For the safety of our members, volunteers & staff we have unfortunately had to close our Accrington Office and reduce the opening hours for our Haslingden & Rawtenstall Offices. We will of course respond to any messages & and voicemails as quickly as possible within our opening times and will update this page and our Facebook Page with any changes when they occur. Please stay safe.
How Can First Choice Help You
Our only shareholders are our members, which means you - and your community - are in control. Our members are more than just customers because we put you first.
Our products and services are designed to help our members manage their money well and our profits are shared amongst members or used to benefit the whole community.
Every penny is used to benefit you. That doesn’t mean less security though - you’re protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
