Spending Time Credits – Cornish delights from seals to sculptures

Cornwall Time Credits is our latest South West programme, delivered in partnership with Cornwall Council, and working closely with individuals accessing substance use and homelessness services. Since launching earlier this year, already over a hundred people have come forward to contribute their time, and the team have partnered with Clean Cornwall, Addaction St Austell, Cosgarne Hall and Safer Cornwall to run group beach cleans in St Austell and Penzance.

Meanwhile our partnerships team have been busy securing opportunities to spend Time Credits at top arts, leisure and wellbeing organisations across the region. If you’re planning a family holiday to the Cornish coast, or have earned some Cornwall Time Credits yourself, we’ve highlighted some of the new Cornish spend partners that have come on board, just in time for summer.

If you are a business in Cornwall and interested to know about some of the benefits of joining the Time Credits spend network, as well as the impact that your organisation could help us achieve, then have a look at our recent Spending Time Credits Impact Report.
