Accounts For Societies & Charities

We welcome applications for Corporate Membership from charities and unincorporated organisations providing community benefit based in the Lewisham or Bromley boroughs. We do not currently admit other types of corporate member, as this service is provided on a not-for-profit basis at our cost to assist local organisations with safely managing their funds.     
If you are interested in opening an account, please complete the application form below and send/bring it to our Sydenham Branch. Corporate accounts cannot be opened at our other branches or on-line.

In common with other financial institutions we require validation and identification of all signatories to the account. Individuals representing organisations will be required to produce identification documents giving proof of name, date of birth and address in accordance with the credit union’s normal identification requirements for individual members. In addition we will require details of all shareholders, directors or beneficial owners holding more than 25% of shares in the organisation who are NOT signatories.
