Developing a City-wide Timebank - First Steps and Next Steps

Discussion facilitated by David Russell, Spice   


Spice is a social enterprise that develops agency timebanking systems for communities and public services that engage and empower the many rather than the few. 


Community decline and civic disengagement is not confined to the old mining towns in the South Wales valleys, it's a national trend. Spice has developed agency time credit applications to engage people in the design and delivery of their public and community services and to support people to take a more active role in their communities. Whether that is with pupils in schools, tenants in housing associations or local people working with their community anchor organisation, these time agency tools increase active engagement, reduce dependency and build community and individual esteem.
