Following the incorporation of these community credit unions and the name change to Cardiff & Vale Credit Union, the organisation's membership gradually became more balanced. Today, we have over 7,000 members, with an equal split between members
who join through a payroll scheme with their employers, and members who join us directly.
In 2013, the credit union agreed a radical strategic vision for the future, including considerably increased membership and modernising services for our
members across all communities in Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan, and staff who work for our payroll partners. Demonstrating our commitment to growth and inclusivity, we moved offices in 2013 from County Hall to Marland House in Cardiff city centre, and opened
a pop-up office in Barry at 21 Holton Road. These moves have allowed us to deliver more accessible services, and welcome many new members to our local revolution for ethical savings and affordable loans.
