We are delighted to have commissioned a team at Coventry University‘s Centre for Business in Society (CBiS) to look at credit unions and their role in delivering financial capability.

Dr Lindsey Appleyard, Professor Sally Dibb and Dr Hussan Aslam will analyse the need for tailored financial education by credit unions to support the financial capability of their members.

They will also offer a solution for credit unions to deliver financial education to members via a free App, designed by CBiS. The App is based on extensive research funded by the recent Money Advice Service ‘what works?’ research grant funding programme (2016-2018). 

We look forward to sharing a paper with our members, and the wider movement, later in the year.
