If you have long been meaning to join the East Sussex Credit Union, there is a new opportunity! You can now join online and save and borrow knowing your cash is staying local and going to help the community in East Sussex. You can still visit the Brighton office on weekdays between 10am and 3pm, and the Lewes help point is open on Wednesdays from 10am to 12 noon in the community flat on De Montfort estate. For more help points see website

Our Credit Union also offers Workplace Savings & Loans Schemes, with payments made direct from employees’ payrolls.  These are currently available for staff at ESCC, Lewes and Wealden District Councils, Eastbourne Borough Council, East Sussex Fire and Rescue, Brighton & Hove Buses, University of Brighton and  Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals Trust, among others.  Anyone working for these employers can contact us to arrange membership and take advantage of the services on offer. Further details can be found on the Workplace Schemes page of the ESCU website.

We are also looking for willing employers to join this scheme, as we believe that this offers a valuable service to employees.  Please get in touch if you think your place of employment and colleagues could benefit.
