Chorley Time Credits

Members Update
February 2015

Christmas Market trip

Our trip to the Manchester

Christmas Markets was a great
day out.
It was brilliant to meet so many
of you and find out where you
volunteer and what else you
spend your credits on.

Thanks to those who posted on

our Facebook page, it was
great to receive your

Time Credit activities Chorley Couch to 5K

Council employees were
invited to earn Time Credits
by supporting the Community
Development Team in running
training sessions as part of
the Chorley Couch to 5 K
programme currently taking
The activity has been a huge
success and we are looking
forward supporting everyone
taking part in the 5k run in

One off earning opportunities

If you want to get involved in setting up a
Time Credit earning activity in your area
its easier than you think and a great way
to bring the community together.
Everyone can get involved and activities
can range from tidy ups to planting and
growing activities or anything else that
supports your community.

Other news
Spices health and social care
programmes received recognition at the
Third Sector Care Awards, winning the
award for Contribution to Sector
The current programme in Chorley
continues to work with the groups and
organisations who were part of the
pioneering Uplift health and social care
project which started in Chorley in 2012.
The judges said Time Credits are
inspiring a mind-set change about the
contribution that service-users can or do
make, acting as a whole-systems
catalyst in shifting attitudes from a deficit
to an asset-based approach

Other activities launch of the Spice Time Credits evaluation report.

Fantastic results about the impact Time Credits are having across the
country! You can see the Chorley results on Chorley Councils website by
searching for Time Credits.

Want to earn more Time Credits?

All our groups are always looking for more help and even just one hour a
week can make a huge difference
Roles are varied with groups needing help with event planning, admin,
book-keeping or getting really involved supporting people of all ages and in
all types of circumstances
Some groups are on the look out for looking for people who would like to
take on the role of a trustee or to join them as a committee member
Or you might have an idea about an activity, event or group you would like
to set up and use Time Credits to help thank volunteers who get involved?

Hopefully you will have enjoyed this update. Future updates are going to
be more frequent but much shorter.
Please do share it with friends you think would benefit from being part of
a group, starting a group or taking part in any one-off earning activities.
Lastly! If youre not following us on Facebook make sure you do as we
publish news about new spend offers on there before they go out on
email and sometimes offers that come up with a very short lead time.
