Move Your Money

Move Your Money is a national campaign to spread the message that we can help to build a better banking system and their site gives advice about the process.

Pledging to move your money is the first step towards building a better, fairer and safer banking sector. The more of us that move our money, the greater the positive impact we can have. By pledging, you are choosing to support mutually owned, community-focused or ethically minded banks. Don’t worry if you cannot move all of your money. Any money you do move will help to support the alternative banking sector and send a message to the “big 5” that you are not happy with the way that they use your money.

They offer basic savings accounts, low cost loans and access to other services such as insurance. It is owned and run by its members who save regularly and these savings are pooled to form a fund to make loans to other members. The income generated from loans is used to meet running costs, with any surplus being distributed back to members. It is regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), and the Association of British Credit Unions (ABCUL).
