How Scotwest Can Help
You may have joined Scotwest through the opening of a branch in your school. Any nursery, primary or secondary school in the West of Scotland, Stirling, Perth & Kinross, Dumfries & Galloway and Highlands can open their own Scotwest School Credit Union Branch.
You can make deposits through your school branch just like in a bank and even become involved in the running of your branch.
If your school doesn’t have its own credit union branch ask your teacher to follow the Wise Owl and find out more here
Once you receive your membership details in the post you can register to use online banking. In addition to your School Branch you can also use online banking to make deposits or simply keep track of how well your savings are building up.
Up to the age of 12 your parent or guardian will be responsible for managing your account on a day to day basis. You will be able to view your balance and check to see how your savings are growing.
We will send you a statement every three months to keep you up to date with how well your savings are growing but don’t forget you can check your balance online at any time if you have registered with us!
Keep up to date with all the Scotwest comings and goings and get great tips on saving on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
