South Manchester Credit Union is exclusively for people who work or live in South Manchester. To check if you are eligible to join our credit union, you can view our map here.


There are two simple ways of joining South Manchester Credit Union, either in person at 187 Fog Lane, or one of our community branches, or you can apply online straight away.


Applying in person

If you want to apply in person you will need:

  • A completed application form, you can download an application form here, or pick one up from the office or at a community branch.
  • Proof of ID and date of birth (eg. driving licence, passport, birth certificate and N.I. Card), proof of address (eg. a recent utility bill), £3 membership fee and at least £1 as an initial deposit.
  • Proof of employment if your connection to the area is through work, rather than residence.


Applying online

The easiest way to apply is online. You can do this at any time in the comfort of your own home. You could become a member with us in less than 10 minutes.

All you will need is your National Insurance Number, and either your Driving Licence or Passport to hand. We will contact you to confirm your membership and arrange payment of your £3 one off membership fee.
