No1 CopperPot Credit Union is a not-for-profit organisation that offers financial services exclusively to the Police Family. We were founded in 1986 by a group of Greater Manchester Police Officers and originally named GMP Credit Union. Years later, following a merger with CopperPot Credit Union in Leicester, we became No1 CopperPot Credit Union. Currently, we have over 35,000 members and we are the largest Police Credit Union in the UK.
No1 CopperPot Credit Union membership is open to any serving or retired Police Officers, Police staff, Police Specials, PCSO’s, immediate family of a Police member (living at the same address), and children/grandchildren of a Police member.
We have three main aims:
1. To encourage our members to save
2. To provide affordable loans
3. To provide financial education
Our ethos is centered around like-minded people helping one another, and our mission is to become the best Credit Union in the UK. We exist solely to help our members and they are at the core of everything we do.
How we work
The interest we make from our lending forms part of our profits each year and it is from the profit we make that we pay our members a dividend. You can see our previous rates by clicking here.
