Ongoing Closure of Office
In light of the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the public office of Oldham Credit Union remains closed.
This decision has been taken in order to limit the potential impact which this virus may have in the local community and on the ongoing operations of the credit union.
Statement from the Board of Oldham Credit Union.
In order to ensure the safety of both members and staff, the Board of Oldham Credit Union have made the decision to maintain the closure of the public counter at Oldham Credit Union.
Lock-down restrictions, social distancing and hygiene rules remain in place. The safety of members and staff is our main priority, and we will continue to monitor and review the situation.
We will only re-open when we are satisfied we can operate in a Covid secure way, in line with relevant legislation, government advice and good practice, so as to minimise the risk to both staff and members.
The Board recognise that members continue to show remarkable patience & resilience in the face of the Covid 19 pandemic and the continued restrictions. We also acknowledge the efforts of staff in maintaining the operations of the credit union.
We would re-assure members that, although the public counter is closed, the credit union very much remains open for business.
We are ready to help in any way we can, including day to day payments, access to savings, Family and Member loans.
