“Donore Credit Union is Ireland’s first and oldest credit union. It is also the first credit union to undertake an analysis of its social value. It is found that the credit union delivers material outcomes for 13 types of stakeholders, with a reduction in stress, a sense of belonging and an improved standard of living being especially valuable to members. For every euro equivalent invested into the credit union, in the region of ten euro of social value is created. This has implications not only for Donore Credit Union, but also for the credit union movement as a whole and host of other policy makers.”
