Corporate social responsibility

The Centre for Social Justice cites financial exclusion as one of the main causes of social exclusion.

For almost ten years, Contis has been at the forefront of the Credit Union movement, having created an account product specifically for this sector. Applicants are not credit checked and can receive their account, with Contis’ award-winning Envelope Facility™ budgeting capability, typically within two minutes.
