Wolverhampton City Credit Union welcomes new board members


Wolverhampton Homes professionals Heather Leary and Linda Evans will be helping to lead the not-for-profit community bank as it embarks upon a major period of growth and modernisation.

Heather has worked in housing for over 30 years and brings substantial knowledge of financial exclusion and Universal Credit to her new voluntary role. Heather is also trained in customer service through the Mary Gober International method.

In her role as Money Smart Manager at Wolverhampton Homes she often meets people who can’t access high street bank accounts due to poor credit scores or lack of personal identification. To nurture financial inclusion, Heather said: “The credit union is a well-known and trusted financial institute. However we need to raise its profile.” One way she will be doing this is to promote the benefits of WCCU membership.  She said: “I prefer to signpost people to the credit union’s Right Price electricals, rather than going to weekly payment stores that charge extortionate APRs (Annual Percentage Rates).”

Linda is a housing professional who currently works at Wolverhampton Homes as a project officer, having previously worked at Bromford Housing Association and the City of Wolverhampton Council.

Linda said: “I will bring a great deal of experience supporting and helping people with money matters.”  In her voluntary role, she will capitalise on her organisational and co-ordinating skills to contribute to the direction of the credit union.

A strong supporter of the credit union, Linda said: “My main interest is in the very viable services to customers in the form of savings, low cost loans and competitive electrical deals.”  She believes that nurturing financial inclusion and education is important to make people aware of ethical financial alternatives. She suggests promoting WCCU services across a wide range of people, from all backgrounds and ages to help make the credit union “a natural choice”.

In her new role as a board member, Linda is looking forward to achieving growth members and building on the solid foundation the credit union has already established.
