This Time opportunities brochure has been produced by

Spice Innovations, Carmarthenshire Housing Service and


Communities First as part of the Community Currencies in
Action (CCIA) collaboration project.
CCIA is a transnational partnership working to develop and
deliver community currency demonstrations in several member
states across the North West of Europe. CCIA will lead the way in
sharing knowledge and best practice to enable communities
throughout Europe to grow stronger in their ability to achieve
vibrant and prosperous networks that are efficient in delivering
social, economic and environmental outcomes.
CCIA will design, develop and implement community currencies
across NW Europe; providing a rigorously tested package of
support structures to facilitate the development of CCs across
NWE and promote CCs as a credible (policy) vehicle for
achieving positive outcomes.
CCIA is part funded through the INTERREG IVB North West
Europe (NWE) Programme, which is a financial instrument of the
European Unions Cohesion Policy - Investing in Opportunities.
