Mission and Vision
Our mission is to render excellence in service to our members while providing the means for enhancing their financial, economic and social well being in consonance with co-operative principles.
Our vision is to be the premier indigenous co-operative financial services provider in the region, hand in hand with our membership.
We commit to these values to guide our decisions and behaviour.
Respect for Individuals We treat each other and our members with respect and dignity, valuing individual differences. We communicate frequently and with candor, listening to each other regardless of level or position.
Dedicated to Helping Members We truly care for each member. We build enduring relationships by understanding and anticipating our members needs and by serving them better each time than the time before.
Highest Standards of Integrity We are honest and ethical in all our business dealings, starting with how we treat each other. We keep our promises and admit our mistakes. Our personal conduct ensures that the Barbados Public Workers' Co-operative Credit Union Limited (BPWCCUL) name is always worthy of trust.
Service Quality, Diversity and Innovation We believe service quality, innovation and diversity are the engines that will keep us vital and growing. Our culture embraces quality and creativity, seeks different perspectives and risks pursuing new opportunities.
Team Work We encourage and reward both individual and team achievements. We freely join with our vendors and business partners across organisation boundaries to advance the interest of our members..
By living these values, BPWCCUL aspires to achieve a standard of excellence that will reward our members, and all BPWCCUL people.
In 1968, members of the Civil Service Association Trade Union (which represented the majority of civil servants in Barbados) made an application and were granted permission to form a Savings Society. By 1969 the objective of the executive of this Society was to have it registered as a Credit Union. On May 6th, 1970 the Barbados Civil Service Association Credit Union Limited (as we were then known) was registered.
In 1977, in order to broaden its bond of membership, the name was changed to Barbados Public Workers' Co-operative Credit Union Limited (BPWCCUL). This bond would now allow the inclusion of former civil servants, staff of statutory boards, husbands, wives and children of members as well as employees of the National Union of Public Workers.
Today membership in Barbados Public Workers' Co-operative Credit Union is open to all Barbadians, resident and non-resident.
In an unprecedented move in 2010 the Credit Union acquired a Mortgage and Finance Company; Capita Financial Services Inc. as it is now known operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BPWCCUL with offices in Barbados and St. Lucia.
