About Northumberland Community Bank

Northumberland Community Bank brings together the Credit Union for South East Northumberland (CUSEN) and Tynedale Community Bank (TCB)

The Credit Union for South East Northumberland (CUSEN) and more recently, Tynedale Community Bank, have been providing local savings and loans services to the residents of Northumberland for more than 20 years. By coming together and combining our efforts, we can now offer to serve members across the whole of Northumberland.

We offer secure savings and loan facilities as a local, friendly alternative to High Street banks and lenders, with face-to-face access available to people throughout Northumberland.

We are keen to grant loans to anybody who needs financial assistance. Loans can be for a variety of purposes, including a luxury purchase, holidays, emergencies and consolidation of existing borrowing - most purposes will be considered.

The community bank is also part of the Lifesavers Project, which helps to promote financial education in schools, and to help children manage money wisely, as well as offering Payroll Deduction schemes to make saving easier for those in employment.

If you or anyone you know would like to apply to become a member to save and/or borrow with Northumberland Community Bank, click on the right for details of how to apply.

We are a ‘not for profit’ enterprise, which means any surplus made by the Bank will be ploughed back into our local communities.
