The Ministry of Justice does not actively promote the use of Credit Unions to staff.

However, any promotion of credit union schemes is generally publicised by the Trade Unions for staff to access.

Although the Ministry does not currently provide such a facility, it does offer financial wellbeing support and advice, as part of its wider employee benefits offer to staff and will continue to explore options to support staff and raise awareness of financial wellbeing.
