About Us

No1 CopperPot Credit Union was formed when two Police Credit Unions merged, one run by Leicestershire Police and the other run by Greater Manchester Police. Since the very beginning, our ethos has remained the same: people helping people and we endeavour to continue providing great service for years to come.

Here at No1 CopperPot Credit Union, we offer financial services, including savings, loans and mortgages to our members.
Our members share a common interest, by either working for, or being related to the Police Family. When you save or borrow with your Credit Union, you know your money is being used to benefit your colleagues and family members and not outside shareholders. The profits that we make each year are used to improve our service and reward our members.

Our credit union has three main aims – all of which add to our growing popularity. Our aims are:

  1. To encourage saving
  2. Provide affordable loans
  3. Give members financial assistance when they need us.


How it works

We offer financial products exclusively to the Police Family, and reward you annually by sharing our profits with you. We are a not-for-profit co-operative that offers savings, loans and mortgages. Each year we give our profits back to our members, in the form of a dividend payment. A credit union is for people, not for profit.
