First Choice - people helping people

Find out more about what we offer

How Can First Choice Help You?

First Choice Credit Union is there for you with flexible, approachable financial services, whether it's for personal loans or savings.

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 savings are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Why First Choice?

Access savings and loans and help your community at the same time.

Whether you are a saver or a borrower you can be assured of a good deal, excellent service and the knowledge that you are helping others in your community to access fair and affordable finance.


We only lend money to our members who live or work in Rossendale, Hyndurn, Ribble Valley, Preston, Burnley, Pendle or Bury North. That means that the money stays at the heart of the community and benefits everyone.

  • Secure savings with access when you need them

  • Fair and affordable loans

  • Excellent customer service

  • No hidden fees

  • Supporting our community
