How Time Credits work

We all need a little help sometimes, for lots of different things. Our communities are no different, and this is where Time credits come in. If you give an hour of your time to your community, your community will say thank you by giving you an hour back to spend on something you like to do. Everyones hour is worth the same and everyone gets thanked. Theres no limit to how many credits you can earn, and the more you earn the more you can spend. Time Credits never expire and they dont cost any money. There are lots of ways to earn Time Credits across your community, and hundreds of ways to spend them across the country. You can earn and spend in a way that suits you. Why? Because everyone has something to give, and ultimately, because a bit of time together makes all the difference. Carers or support workers are given free entry with anyone who has earned Time Credits and needs a bit of extra assistance. If you or someone you know or support have any specific accessibility needs, please call our friendly partners before visiting, theyll be happy to help. cont...
