About My Community Bank
The members of My Community Bank share many mutual interests.
Some of these interests include building strong communities as they want a bank that is part of, and invested in their community. And all members want the best rates for their savings and fair rates on personal loans.
Brent Shrine Credit Union is how My Community Bank was born, first established in 1979 to serve people living or working in the London Borough of Brent.
Serving the UK
Since then, My Community Bank has grown and our common bond has been extended several times to include members and supporters of various organisations and associations across the UK. We are proud to announce that supporters of the financial education charity: Financial Education and Awareness, are now able to register as members.
My Community Bank network
Jointly our three credit unions covers our network in England, Scotland and Wales.
Who can join?
My Community Bank membership is open to all and to be eligible, all you have to do is join any one of the many organisations associated with our credit union. Additionally, people living or working in the London Borough of Brent are also eligible.
Our number one goal is to fight financial exploitation and provide members with a fair, affordable banking and financing solution.
My Community Bank Services
What we offer our members are fair credit reference loans. If you have struggled to get a loan from traditional lenders or high street banks, but still have a fair credit profile, we would like to help you.
