People helping people, plain and simple – Thistle Credit Union


Thistle credit union is a financial co-operative owned by its members. It is a not-for-profit organisation which offers a savings and low cost loans service to its members.


Blantyre Credit Union Ltd trading as Thistle Credit Union endeavours to fulfil its mission to:


“Provide practical, reliable and ethical financial products and services to all who reside or work in Lanarkshire delivering a high standard of customer service at all times.”


This will be accomplished through sharing a common set of values which include:


    • Putting members first – Our members are our main priority and their interest is what drives any decisions that are made.


    • Transparency & Integrity – We work to an exceptionally high standard of business ethics and conduct; and through this earn trust in being responsible, honest and accountable with our members’ investments and assets.


    • Caring – We are a caring organisation that respects and values our members, staff, volunteers and community.


    • Dedicated – We are dedicated to exceeding expectations in everything we do and believe that each employee/volunteer contributes greater value when they can shape and impact how things are achieved.



As a Credit union - we basically work by members saving together to create a pool of money from which low cost loans are made.


The aim of our credit union is:

            To encourage members to save regularly

            To provide low cost loans to members

            To encourage careful money management among members

            To give access to all for affordable credit

            To develop a sense of co-operation and community
