A busy meeting on Monday saw the Board approve the Scotwest Strategic Business Plan and Budget for the year ahead. We also approved updates to a range of policies and were happy to note that the upgrade to our digital banking went ahead as planned and already over 10,000 members have used it. If you haven’t tried it yet, please have a look, the feedback has been amazing.

We have seen a steady increase in borrowing which we hope indicates a return to some kind of normality for many of our Members. However, we are also aware of how household budgets will be squeezed in the months ahead and wish to remind our Members that Scotwest is here to help and if you feel you are struggling with any Scotwest debt, please get in touch. Finally, the Scotwest Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 29 November at 6.30pm. Like last year this meeting will take place online. Look out for an announcement on how to register soon.
