Jubilee Tower Credit Union was founded in 1996 by Sudellside Community Association in Darwen as Darwen Tower Credit Union and originally operated from the community centre one evening per week. From such humble beginnings we have grown organically and
In 2004 we expanded to cover the whole Borough; and a little bit more as we also serve part of the southern Ribble Valley. A little later on, in 2007, Blackburn South Credit Union merged with us so there was a single credit union serving the
whole borough. We now have over 2,000 adult members and 1,800 Young Savers with assets of approximately £1 million. We are still based in Darwen town centre and as a truly accessible community enterprise we open up our services to the whole Borough by
operating from a number of community locations over the week.
In 2015 and 2016 the Credit Union has received a number of awards from EDWARD FILENE CREDIT UNION AWARDS held in london along with others from around the world of credit unions.
