Dudley Building Society Launches Dudley Branch Access Account


Dudley Building Society announced the launch of a new, community-focused account, the Dudley Branch Access Account. This account aims to provide immediate financial support to customers of the recently closed Castle & Crystal Credit Union, which was placed into administration on May 21, 2024, and has since ceased trading.


Recognising the immediate needs of vulnerable individuals who were previously served by Castle & Crystal Credit Union, Dudley Building Society is stepping up to offer a solution that ensures these customers have access to their money and the necessary financial support. The account is designed to provide a simple, accessible, and flexible option for those affected, as well as for any new or existing customers that would suit the account.


"We are deeply committed to supporting our local community, especially during times of financial uncertainty," said Simon Dodd, Head of Retail at Dudley Building Society. "The closure of Castle & Crystal Credit Union has left many customers in a precarious situation. Our new Dudley Branch Access Account is specifically tailored to offer immediate and accessible financial services, helping to stabilize and support those who need it most in our community. Our friendly branch staff are on hand to help interested customers with their application and answer any questions."


The Dudley Branch Access Account is exclusive to our Dudley branch, ensuring that local customers receive tailored, in-person service and support. With a low minimum opening balance of just £1, it is highly accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. Additionally, the account offers flexibility with no restrictions on withdrawals, allowing customers full access to their funds whenever needed.


Dudley Building Society invites anyone in the community who needs financial assistance or advice to visit our Dudley branch. Our team is ready to provide the help and support required to ensure a smooth transition and secure financial future for our customers.
