Putting our members first
We work to make sure you get the most out of your banking experience, and that the community benefits too.
We operate right across the Central West, and have done for over 50 years. This means that no one understands local personal finance like Central West Credit Union.
We live and work in your community, and understand your job, your business and your family. Our team are empowered to make decisions locally, so you don’t get lost in a maze of call-centres, red tape and decision makers.
Overall, we work to protect our member’s money, providing banking solutions for each generation and supporting younger generations to grow.
The Central West County Council Employees Credit Union was formed in October 1966, with just 86 members. In 1970 we opened our doors to all local government and hospital employees, and adopted the name you know and trust today, Central West Credit Union Ltd.
Then, in 1981, we opened our services to all members of the community, and haven’t looked back since.
We have grown over this time to a team of over 20 staff, working across six locations and servicing over 10 000 customers right across Australia. We’ve adapted to digital change and provide a full suite of banking services, letting you manage your money where you want to: online, on the phone, or in person.
Despite these changes, we still retain the key features of a local Credit Union. We are community proud, and managed by a local Board of Directors elected by Members at an Annual General meeting.
We are big enough to give you confidence with your finances, but small enough to know your name.
We are committed to supporting the local community, through maintaining branches across the Central West, and being involved in local events and activities.
We believe in creating a more vibrant and sustainable future for our region.
