Hoot Credit Union wins Best Partnership Award at the Institute of Money Advisers Awards 2016

The team at Hoot Credit Union are delighted to have been awarded Best Partnership Award at this year’s Money Advice Awards.

The award is given for the joint effort of Hoot Credit Union, Bolton MoneySkills and Bolton Council’s Local Welfare Provision in delivering anti-poverty initiatives to the town’s financially excluded community.

By delivering a programme of money advice, financial education and affordable credit facilities, the project has been able to help a number of people get back on their feet after financial crisis and begin the process of sustainable management of their own finances.

Steve Bottrill, Chairperson of Hoot said “We are proud of this recognition for our partnership work and our contribution to Bolton’s anti-poverty initiatives. We work closely with partners on a number of projects aimed at delivering our ethical values in the community. Having also just achieved the Fairbanking Mark for our loans, the credit union is gaining more and more recognition as the responsible alternative for savings and loans in the community”

Representatives from Hoot Credit Union and Bolton Moneyskills received the award at a ceremony at  the recent Institute of Money Advice conference.
