Changemaker Credit Union logo

The Changemaker Credit Union is a joint initiative between the University of Northampton and Northamptonshire Credit Union (NCU) to provide financial services packages to all students and staff of the university.

Join our Changemaker Credit Union and you will be supporting a local and ethical savings and loan scheme that is owned and managed by students for all members.
