I decided to join Leeds city credit union because I wanted to build up some savings, Also being a member meant I could apply for a loan in the future. I had run up quite a few large debts in the months leading up to joining and decided to apply for a quite large loan of 700 pounds and to my surprise i was sent a text message the next morning informing me a loan of 700 had been agreed. I was given details to log in online and could see the loan amount that had been credited and also all other… Read Full Review

I was a member of the Wakefield based White Rose Credit Union, and was very happy with the service, the charges and the staff. WRCU charged £1 a week to administer the account, which was fair and reasonable. We were promised the takeover by Leeds City Credit Union would be good for us, and would improve service. Nothing could be further from the truth I am afraid. Previously we could transfer money, including savings, from one account into our Current Accounts online. That option has been… Read Full Review

The credit union was a breath of fresh, not anymore....... The reports in the papers over the last couple of years are indeed true.Sadly Mrs Davenports demise was required but there were others including the deputy CEO that fully understood the events. It is now the tax payees responsibility to drag this failing company out of a deep hole. Ask yourself how the council can keep giving them handouts, where do you think they will generate the funds to keep doing this? Many of the staff have gone… Read Full Review

I support the Credit Union and always will. They have been a big help to me in the past and I will continue to save with them. I have always found the staff to be polite and courtious - keep up the good work especially through these tough times… Read Full Review

The first review is full of inaccuracies.
There is no charge to close an account.
The maximum interest rate by law is 2%.
Membership is £5 (one off) and the current account has a weekly charge of 75p per week. Many banks are now charging £15 per month.
Kirkgate branch in the city centre is open Saturday mornings.
I have been a member since it began in 1987… Read Full Review

Credit Unions, by definition, are there to help less-fortunate members of the community have access to banking facilities but it seems that times have changed and "money talks". Not only do they insist that to be a member one must make a minimum monthly deposit but they have now started charging weekly for the privilege of being ripped off.
I say this because a) they charge you £10 just to close your account! and b) because the law states that a credit union can only legally charge a maximum of… Read Full Review

Leeds City Credit Union operates like a department of a city council and keeps local authority opening times which is the usual public sector practice. Many people can't get into the offices during normal office hours, they should provide a service on Saturdays in branch offices… Read Full Review

I joined Leeds City Credit Union at the beginning when the office on Roundhay Road was about to be launched and donated office equipment/furniture.
Although this office is nearer to where I live, I think that some of the staff at this office are not as thoroughly trained on the desk -apart from a couple of people - and come across quite unprofessional, which is why I used the New York Street office. I will not be taking my service here any more and will try the one at Great George Street… Read Full Review

I believe in the system since I was introduced to it years ago in Ireland. I joined the North East Leeds CU in its early days and it has been useful to me on several occasions but I am more impressed by the work it does for folk less fortunate than me… Read Full Review
