Welcome to Dacorum First Credit Union
We are still supporting and servicing our customers during COVID but with some differences from normal.
Our volunteers will be in the office Tuesday – Friday (but hours vary) to respond to messages and to deal with loan and withdrawal applications. We are now able to accept new applications for membership.
Our number is 01442 240250 and our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you think you need to visit in person please give us a ring as all visits must be pre-booked.
If you want to pay in cash to your account with DFCU please go to the Lloyds bank and ask to pay in to our account with them as follows:
Sort Code 30-94-08 and Account Number 02025698
It is most important that you use your DFCU account number as the reference. If you don’t know your account number please contact us. Printable instructions are here.
Alternatively use these same details to pay in via internet banking – again be sure to quote your DFCU account number.
If you think you will have difficulty with loan repayments please get in touch with us as soon as possible. As a community organisation we will try to do our best to help you.
Until further notice we will no longer require 30 days notice for withdrawals or share transfers. We are also unable to open new accounts until further notice.
If you want to apply for a loan, withdrawal or transfer you will still need to complete and sign the usual forms and post them to us. Forms can be printed from this website from the Forms page or we will send you one in the post if you contact us.
We apologise if these changes mean that things take a little longer than usual and ask for your understanding. We will keep our website updated with any changes to these policies. If you have any suggestions for improvement please let us know.
Our aim is to provide people who live or work in Dacorum with a simple and affordable way to save and borrow money. We are a cooperative, staffed by volunteers with any profits being returned to the members as a dividend.
We rely on our members to save with us so that we can lend that money to members who need to borrow. Members who have savings with us can borrow for almost any purpose at low interest rates.
Although we are a volunteer organisation we operate in a professional manner. We are audited and regulated to ensure that our members savings are safe, and we monitor loan repayments carefully.
We are always looking for new members and volunteers so if you are interested in either or both – give us a ring or call into the office.
We do not offer formal financial advice but can help our members through the process of loan application etc.
If you are in financial difficulties we suggest that you contact the Citizens Advice Bureau or the National Debtline which offers free, independent and confidential advice on dealing with your debts (call 0808 808 4000).
