Time Credits are run by Tempo (formerly Spice), a charity that started in Wales in 2008 and now works across the UK. The vision was that for strong, connected communities, everyone’s time was valued, therefore Time Credits networks was set up to help achieve that.
Time Credits are a way of recognising the amazing things people do in their communities. If you’re in an area where Time Credits work through giving time to your community, you can earn Time Credits, which you can then spend on hundreds of activities across the national network.
Everyone’s time is worth the same with Time Credits and, as well as spending them yourself, you can take friends or family with you, or give
them some of your Time Credits to spend themselves. There are lots of ways to earn Time Credits across your community, and hundreds of ways to spend them across the country. Have a look around their website for spending opportunities near you, and in other regions of the UK. You can find more about Time Credits at www.wearetempo.org.
School will run a number of different events where Time Credits can be collected. Please look out for these events on our newsletter.
