Victim Support – for victims and witnesses of crime
Tower Hamlets Greenlight Credit Union
With introducing the Credit Union, families could access affordable credit, save and gain access to loans, social security, better housing, family support and after school for their children.
We registered the GreenLight Credit Union on 22nd May 1980, with the Industrial and Provident Society, to promote self help and financial management to members of the BME communities who were at risk of exploitation from loan shacks and banks and building societies reluctant to offer loans. With the 1979 Act, the credit union had a statutory duty to comply with the following.
- To keep proper books of account and provide quarterly returns and annual accounts to the credit union league of Great Britain.
- Insurance against fraud and other form of dishonesty.
- Training for board members on how to conduct the business of the credit union.
- Monthly board and quarterly members’ meeting.
- Maintenance of general reserve for bad loans.
- Set limits on loans and encourage members to save.
- Maintain and establish a system of financial control and to protect members’ identity.
The Tower Hamlets GreenLight credit union is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
