Our Community

Community is at the heart of our existence.

NZCU South has been serving local communities in the South Island for over 45 years.

From Nelson to the Bluff, Westport to Akaroa we now have all your banking needs covered. With the amalgamation of Southland, Otago, Canterbury, Nelson and the West Coast Credit Union, we look forward to an exciting future of helping you achieve financial success.

We work with our customers in the community, particularly those who need help with getting out of debt. Our personal loan products are tailored especially to help customers escape the cycle of increasing debt. By consolidating debts into one manageable and low-cost loan our customers find they get out of debt faster enabling them to focus on reaching their goals.

We also provide specialist support services for customers who want to turn around their finances and stop being dependant on high-cost consumer debt. Working closely with individual customers with debt issues has a very high success rate, is personally rewarding, and reflects the credit union ethos of caring about the financial success of each and every customer in our community.
