About Us

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.


We have three main aims:

1. To encourage saving.

2. To provide affordable loans.

3. To provide a friendly and efficient service.


Our ethos is centred 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.
