Volunteering with SCU

Solent Credit Union is a co-operative organisation, owned by its members and governed by a board of directors (also volunteers) who are elected by the other members.

While we have a few part-time staff, volunteering is vital to us.  We couldn’t run without volunteers.  

Volunteering offers the opportunity to:

  • Meet new people
  • Receive training and experience
  • Share and improve your skills
  • Contribute to the success of the co-operative

We need directors and other volunteers to work with us.   We will welcome anybody who enjoys working with people or on special projects.   You can work with us for just a few hours a week, or put in more time if you like.  Training will be provided.
