Credit union media, PR and social media toolkit

Download our media relations and social media toolkit for credit unions. This guide has been prepared by Think Communications and Fair4All Finance, who would like to thank ABCUL and UK Credit Unions for their input.

This guide includes templates for potential press activity, including hitting milestones in membership, new local partnerships or where a “VIP” voices support for the credit union. In each template, there is plenty of space for you to personalise the news story, which is really important for local media.

It also includes tips on how to “sell in” a media story to a journalist which may be helpful for your marketing or communications lead.

Please be careful as we do not provide loans or contact customers for this purpose. If you've been approached, please report to Action Fraud immediately via their website or on 0300 123 2040.
