Chairman’s statement

Welcome to Cornish Community Banking

CCB is working to provide a real alternative to the High Street banks. It is a local Credit Union working for the people of Cornwall.

We want to bring a fresh approach to the work of the credit unions offering a range of services like the new Credit Union Current Account which allows more accessible banking and easy access to members’ pay, benefits and savings.

CCB has been established in order to tackle the issues caused by debt and the offers of easy-to-access credit that have high repayment costs attached. We aim to help people understand how to better manage their finances. The pages of this website describe in more detail the range of services available to members and those looking for help.

CCB operates because of the commitment of a group of dedicated volunteers, supporters and a small team of paid staff. If you would like to find out more about volunteering and how to join the team at Cornish Community Banking please get in touch.”
