If you’re looking to commission a broader Time Credits programme for your local community or area, find out more.


You can offer Time Credits to valued volunteers or service users, in exchange for them giving their time. They can then spend their Time Credits on activities with our local and national partners.

You can set up Time Credits for your organisation in a way to best meet your needs. Here are a few examples:

Capping to 5 Time Credits per week Useful if you have a lot of volunteers or time given, or if your volunteers won’t realistically spend Time Credits for each hour they give
Capping to 1 Time Credit per session Incentivise people to come back for additional sessions or to ensure everyone earns Time Credits equally, regardless of time given. This is also a great way to turbo-charge a specific impact objective such as getting people active
1 hour = 1 Time Credit For specific projects, community engagement or co-design / consultation. If people can’t earn a whole hour at one time, smaller blocks of time can add up to an hour
Time Credits offered for specific roles A great way to attract people with certain skills, from diverse backgrounds or for specific opportunities
Time Credits used as a one-off e.g. to hand out at a celebration event or as a thank you
