Everyone knows the importance of savings, so the sooner we teach our children, the better!
We at BCCU want to teach the children of the community, financial responsibility from a young age and help them save for the future! Whether its saving for a skateboard, a games console or their future education, BCCU are going to be here every step of the way.
By opening a Junior savings account with BCCU you’re giving your child a great head start in life and the opportunity to learn about money management from a young age. If you are a parent/guardian and want to open a Junior saver account, then please Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment to open an account today.
What do we offer?
We offer junior savings accounts from your child’s birth right up to their 16th birthday* These accounts are instant access and can be used for the benefit of the child. You choose how much you save whether its £1 a week or £50 a month, let us help you teach your children the importance of savings.
You can save into your junior account by transacting at the counter, through one of our local school savings schemes** or with a regular standing order/direct debit to get it up and running and then forget about it!

For Junior savers joining the credit union all you need is:
