About Us

Watch Our Introduction Film

The Solution Centre is a hothouse unit developing specialist products, supports and solutions to enable Credit Unions to sustainably grow their business.

Founded in 2016, our focus is on creating solutions that enable Credit Unions to reach more customers and offer them more.

As a credit union owned and operated not for profit, the sole focus of the Solution Centre is facilitating co-operation amongst co-operatives on projects that will have practical benefits for credit unions.

Our goal is to provide value to credit unions in order to enhance and strengthen their business practices and the credit union system in Ireland as a whole.
