Another excellent podcast from our good friend Chris Smith. In this episode, we hear the testimony of some British credit union CEOs on the challenges they have faced in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. You can listen to the podcast here. These conversations build on the paper CFCFE published last month, which you can download here, and which described many examples of the ‘credit union difference’ in action as credit unions seek to support their members through this very difficult period. Chris will shortly be producing a podcast based on the Irish experience, to complement the second paper in our series (available here).

CFCFE is delighted to have entered into a sponsorship arrangement with Chris to support his podcasts, and we will be collaborating with him in this area more closely in 2020. CFCFE members in particular can expect more podcast output over the summer. If you have suggestions for topics that would be of interest to credit unions and their stakeholders, please contact Nick Money via
