Time Credits reach 1 million milestone

28 February 2020 Posted by

Tempo have reached a huge milestone in the history of Time Credits.


1 million Time Credits have been earned in the last 12 years and since April 2018 Cornwall have earned 20,000… That equates to 20,000 hours of time given to their local community by volunteers in Cornwall!

Tempo’s mission is to use Time Credits to engage people in communities and to help shape local services and improve health and wellbeing for all. Thousands of volunteers and hundreds of partners are helping them to achieve this mission, and by reaching this latest milestone, they are one step closer to their 2023 objectives: to involve a quarter of a million people in their communities, and to enable 2.5 million hours to be earned and spent.

Time Credits are designed to take volunteers or services users on a journey, from the moment they first participate, through to becoming an active member of their community. Cornwall has almost 1,000 volunteers earning Time Credits which they can spend with over 50 different spend partners including Eden Project, Plymouth Argyle, Carn to Cove Theatre Group and the new Cinema in Bodmin.

Time Credits provide organisations with an innovative way to attract and retain volunteers, drive engagement in services and maximise community participation. This year we’re looking to bring even more partners on board so if you would like to be involved please contact Celia Davis at celiadavis@wearetempo.org
