Johnstone Credit Union Ltd


We are a community-based credit union. Established in 1979, we have grown over the last 37 years to a membership of more than 5,000 people, with a common bond that covers the whole of Renfrewshire.

As a credit union, we encourage the habit of saving which creates a fund that members can borrow from. We also offer flexible and convenient loans at highly competitive rates.

Supporting Rural Communities

A Credit Union Awareness survey conducted in 2016 asked people to identify barriers to joining a credit union and  nearly 10% of respondents highlighted lack of rural collections.  In response to this, Johnstone Credit Union are delighted to be supporting 4 rural communities to operate collection in their area.

Our outreach collections are:

  • Bishopton Library every Monday 2pm – 4pm
  • Lochwinnoch Library every Tuesday 2pm – 4pm
  • Kilbarchan Old Library every Wednesday 2pm – 4pm
  • Freeland Church, Bridge of Weir every Friday 10am – 12 noon

At the local collection you will be able to join the credit union, pay into your account including Christmas Club and find out about our products and services and all the fantastic ways we can benefit you.

The credit union relies on the dedication and commitment of volunteers to keep its services running and we would love to hear from members who would be interested in supporting their community by assisting at a weekly collection.
