Credit Unions of Wales Awards

The Credit Unions of Wales Awards celebrate the volunteers, partners, members and staff who make a difference to people and communities across the nation.

The Annual Credit Unions of Wales Awards.

Celebrating the people and partners who are making a positive difference to our communities across Wales.

The Credit Unions of Wales Awards mark International Credit Union Day.

Each year, since 2017, Credit Unions of Wales have worked together to celebrate the exceptional people who make the movement what it is. Coinciding with International Credit Union Day in October, the awards have become a highlight of the year, securing news coverage and recognition for our otherwise unsung heroes.

The award categories recognise the people making a difference to our communities.

The Credit Unions of Wales Awards categories are created to celebrate the people who work tirelessly to improve the financial wellbeing of our communities. Categories include member making a difference, school partner, payroll partner, volunteer, workplace champion, lifetime achievement and access to financial services.

Sponsorship opportunities.

To ensure that there are no financial barriers to people entering the awards, each year generous partners sponsor the event which takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the historic Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay.

Celebrating the amazing people who make Credit Unions in Wales such a success.

  • Partners: The schools who run savers clubs with their credit unions and the employers who help staff save and access affordable loans with their credit union.
  • People: The volunteers and members who are making a positive impact on their community.
  • Access to financial services: The only award given to a credit union, recognising the exceptional efforts made to ensure that people in Wales have access to straight-forward savings and affordable loans.
