Things people say Poor legislation? 2.Credit unions don’t work in Britain, alien model? 3.Credit Union name is unhelpful, both credit and union can be negative words for many? 4.High cost lenders have more money to advertise than we have, we need a national advertising campaign? 5.Not enough central and local government subsidy? 6.And the truth Most credit unions in Britain do not have a strong enough offering to attract most people in a highly competitive financial services market.
