To be eligible to join, you must be at least 16 years old and live or work on Islay or Jura.  If you are under 16 years old, you can join Islay & Jura Junior Savers.

Bowmore Collection Point ready for businessYou must complete a Membership form, which can be obtained at one of the Collection Points, or you can print a copy from our forms page.   Take your completed form to whichever Collection Point is convenient for you, together with two forms of identification.  One of these should show your address and the other should show your signature.  Please try not to use a bank card for this, as we are obliged by law to keep a photocopy of your ID.  You also need to bring £1.00 membership fee, and a minimum of £1.00 to start your savings.

If you want to join and are unable to attend at a Collection Point, please contact us and we will make an alternative arrangement.

Once your application has been processed and approved, you will be issued with a Pass Book in which all your future transactions should be recorded.  It is important that you bring this book with you whenever you visit a Collection Point or conduct other business with the Credit Union.
