My Community Bank has grown out of a credit union called Brent Shrine Credit Union which was first formed in 1979 to serve people living or working in the London Borough of Brent. We changed our name to My Community Bank and extended our common bond nationally to encompass the British South Asian diaspora.

Since then our common bond has extended a number of times to include members and supporters of  a very wide range of  organisations and associations  across the UK. Recently we have extended membership to supporters of the financial education charity: Financial Education and Awareness.

My Community Bank is one of the three credit unions which form the My Community Bank network covering England, Scotland and Wales.
