ABOUT US   HISTORY  


History

The idea for the Traditional Credit Union (TCU) was originally developed by a group of Aboriginal Elders to provide financial services to residents of Arnhemland communities who were disadvantaged by a lack of banking and other financial services.

We would not have developed any further if it weren't for grant funding received from the then Government Department ATSIC and the Arnhemland Progress Association. Through the tireless efforts of a number of Aboriginal Elders and the Arnhemland Progress Association we were incorporated as a credit union on the 5th December 1994.

With our first remote branch opened in Milingimbi in 1995 we have grown to a network of fifteen branches. As a credit union, our members (whether individuals, family groups or organisations) are shareholders and hence the primary focus for us is the needs of our members.

Our Vision

Our Mission

"Our mission statement is to provide personalised quality financial services for the Indigenous people and organisations in remote communities while respecting and valuing the cultural heritage of Indigenous Australians."
