We are a community credit union that was established in 2006. We are a merger of 3 smaller credit unions in Erskine, Renfrew and Linwood which has served the local community for over 30 years.
We provide affordable ethical loans at fair rates of interest to meet every day needs, from replacing a broken washing machine right through to a home extension.
We also provide a range of savings plans and other accounts that help our members save and manage their money. You can even have your own debit card and pin number!
If you live, work or study in Renfrewshire you can open an account online or come in and visit us on the Paisley High Street.
Here are just some of the exciting things that RWCU has been involved in within Renfrewshire and what we are continuing to do as a community.

CashCubs is a primary school savings club, created to help your child learn about the benefits of saving in a fun and habit forming way.
Renfrewshire council set up the new iSave initiative where a credit union account will be opened for every S1 pupil as they start secondary school. This is being done to encourage saving habits and budgeting skills that will last into adulthood. This will be supported by financial education throughout secondary school. By building a savings history with RWCU, pupils can apply for low interest, ethical loans in their adult life, cutting down the need to take on high interest credit. The initiative has been running successfully for 2 years, this is down to the hard work of pupils and school staff who volunteer in their RWCU iSave credit union.
