Safeguarding Ireland has set up a dedicated area on its website to highlight the event. Credit unions will find campaign materials and public information videos here which can be used to inform staff and members.
Credit Unions play a crucial role in society in protecting members against financial exploitation. This is mainly due to the credit union’s unique common bond which means that credit unions may have local knowledge of their members. Face to face transactions are carried out in credit union offices and members tend to carry out regular transactions which means that staff may be able to track transactional patterns.
