We were clear in the policy statement Securing the Post Office Network in the Digital Age, published on 9 November 2010, that we support a stronger link up between the Post Office and credit unions.

In addition to existing arrangements, Post Office Limited is working to extend its co-operation with credit unions, including continued engagement with the Association of British Credit Unions to explore options to further expand services.
