What does Anneliese Dodds have to say about our Credit union?

"The Covid 19 crisis has caused significant financial distress to many people in Oxford and Oxfordshire Credit Union, a not-for-profit cooperative, has been incredibly supportive. Owned and operated by its members and controlled by a volunteer Board of Directors Oxfordshire Credit Union offers a safe place to save and affordable credit to its members. Many of its members save and repay their loans through a deduction from their payroll and employers such as Oxford City Council, Oxford University Hospitals Trust and more recently University College Oxford recognise this as an employee benefit that costs virtually nothing to provide."

Anneliese is the British Labour and Co-operative MP for Oxford East and is currently serving as Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
