We are closely monitoring the situation, following government advice, whilst holding the health of account holders, the community and staff at the heart of decision making.
However we understand the saving and loan services we provide to the community are very important. We will update this page to inform account holders what the current position is with the credit union in relation to coronavirus. Please be assured that PCCU are working hard on contingency planning.

When will the PCCU branches reopen to account holders?
PCCU reopened the three town centre branches in Nelson, Burnley and Colne on Tuesday 26th May 2020 at 12:00pm. The branches will open Monday-Friday with normal hours.
All three branches closed on Saturdays for the foreseeable future. Due to the lockdown announced on the 4th January 2021 we are unable to keep the Nelson branch operating on Saturdays mornings.
