Our housing programmes work with housing associations and local authorities to increase and sustain tenant involvement, tackle disadvantage and develop stronger, more connected neighbourhoods.
Some of our housing partners
We work across a range of housing settings, including general needs housing and supported housing. Time Credits enable housing organisations to work with tenants on developing better financial resilience, digital inclusion, skills & employment. Our programmes also support Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) who are working to develop estates and services that are managed more co-productively, with tenants shaping and contributing to services & assets such as communal space.
"Making a film is also a really powerful thing. It's not every day you get to make something like that - to know you can hopefully reach lots of people, and help them learn what it's like, and who we are."
- Jeremy, Time Credit Member
The Yr Aelwyd resident hosts swathes of fetes, Big Lunches and film nights to encourage community living and get others involved in the Time Credits scheme.
Elaine has some simple advice for any organisations that are thinking of getting involved in a Time Credit Network and says “Go for it! You have nothing to lose but a lot to gain. Time credits are a really valuable tool to help all organisations which have volunteers as an important part of their makeup. The Time Credit project has made a big difference to our family centre and we are very grateful to Carmarthenshire Housing Services and Spice for introducing us to it.”
Time Credits are helping residents in temporary Chorley accommodations gain communication and problem solving skills as well as positively impacting their confidence and aspirations.
