bcu is a division of Police & Nurses Limited following the successful merger between Bananacoast Community Credit Union Ltd and Police & Nurses Limited. Bananacoast Community Credit Union Ltd was originally created in the early 1970’s, formed by a small group of business owners—predominately banana farmers on the NSW North Coast—to provide a local, realistic banking alternative to the big banks.
Then and now
Fast forward nearly 50 years and the bcu brand continues to offer localised service and expertise from Port Macquarie to the Sunshine Coast whilst enjoying the economies of scale that comes from being part of the larger member owned Police & Nurses Limited.
