This message is from Spice. I met with them a few months ago and think it’s a great opportunity that we can be part of this initiative. Here’s you chance to help shape hopw it works in Telegraph Hill by coming along to one of their sessions at the Telegraph Hill Centre.
Lewisham Council and the charity Spice are working together to develop a Time Credits Network in your area as a way of increasing community involvement. This Time Credit project is a new initiative designed to value the time that individuals give to their community. It is a simple concept; for every hour that you give to a local group or the community you gain one time credit. These credits can then be used to attend local events, activities and training or you can get an hour of help from another member of the project. All community groups or individuals in the community are welcome to join.
What will happen at the session?
The event is a chance for you to find out more about the project and to help design how this could operate in the Telegraph Hill ward. It will be an interactive workshop designed to enable you to give ideas, ask questions and be actively involved in your local community.
Who should come along?
Your local ward councillors all support this exciting approach, so if you are a member of the community in Telegraph Hill, run a community group, volunteer for a local organisation, or a staff member of a local group or public service then this event is for you.
If you would like to bring other members of your organisation or the community please forward them this invite so they can register. Alternatively you can fill out their details and complete the registration on their behalf.
We look forward to seeing you on the day!
