Cornwall Council has awarded The Learning Partnership for Cornwall and IOS four contacts to deliver quality services for young people across Cornwall. Collectively known as Your Way the services now available are as follows:
Your Way services are being delivered in partnership with Young People Cornwall, Xenzone-KOOTH, Penwith Community Development Trust and Volunteer Cornwall and will be jointly designed, developed and managed with young people.
The Time Banking service is available to all young people aged 11-19 in Cornwall and organisations who support young people. Young people can join the service directly or via a referral from an organisation, with whom they are involved.
Time Credit systems work on a simple hour-for-hour basis: for every hour you give to your community, you earn one Time Credit, which you can then bank and spend on an activity of your choice, or alternatively, gift to another person or donate to a community group or charity.
If you wish to join the Time BankYour Way, refer a young person or become a Time Bank Buddy (+19’s) then you can do so by completing the Time Bank referral form that can be accessed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting our page on the Volunteer Cornwall website:

Time Banking UK is the national umbrella charity linking and supporting time banks across the country. We provide support, advice, guidance, resources and training to anyone interested in learning about timebanking, incorporating timebanking into their organisation or those who want to start up community time banks.
Timebanking UK supports all models of timebanking in all settings, with organisational timebanking becoming a big part of the sustainability plans of networks across the country.
Timebanking is witnessing extraordinary growth since the first time banks in the UK in 1998. Spread to over 40 nations and 6 continents, there is now over 26,000 people time banking in the UK alone who have generated over 1.3 million hours of support for each other. There are new time banks being set up every week. With the twin drivers of the public deficit crisis and the Coalition Government’s commitment to hand more power and responsibility to local communities and individuals, the political climate could not be more supportive of time banking.
We are a charity and company limited by guarantee.
Our head office is in Stroud, Gloucestershire where our core team work and liaise with time banks across the country.
Timebanking UK believes in a world in which people may have all they need for their own well being by contributing what they can to:
To do this we have three clear roles: HELPING, THINKING & DOING.
Supporting timebanking projects and our membership through advice, consultancy, training and technical support
Researching and evaluating timebanks projects, helping to shape the policy debate around coproduction and sytem change
Prototyping and piloting new models of timebanking and co-productions, such as the ‘Shares’ social marketplace.
We work primarily with organisations from the public and community sectors, in a consultancy and advisory capacity
Our training programmes cover a broad range of interests through from local community champions interested in timebanking to commissioners of public services.
Our software and support packages are open to everyone.
