Movement Advocacy

Credit unions act collectively in a variety of contexts. The credit union movement has a number of representative associations and a nationwide network of chapters, associations and alliances. Moore is heavily involved in both supporting and advising this credit union representative infrastructure. We have been involved in a wide variety of projects of a policy nature. Our in-depth knowledge of credit unions coupled with strong relationships in every part of the movement means that we offer unrivalled expertise in both economic, regulatory and technological policies and strategies as they relate to the movement as a whole. We therefore are leaders in supporting credit union advocacy; through the provision of robust technical expertise to support dynamic and effective advocacy.  We have recently advised the Irish League of Credit Unions on the structuring of a proposal whereby the Irish credit union movement could create a dedicated funding vehicle to provide finance for social housing in line with Government Policy. Separately, Moore, as part of its corporate social responsibility programme, has formed a strategic partnership with the charitable arm of the Irish league of Credit Unions (the ILCU Foundation) to help to develop other credit union systems in low income countries. An essential element of this partnership is that Moore provides funding for staff of overseas movements to visit Ireland for training opportunities and visit a number of Irish credit unions. We have developed relationships with representative bodies in Albania and Belize as part of this compelling initiative and have advised representative leaders in these economies on how to develop constructive engagement with local governmental authorities.
