Spice works with organisations across England and Wales to encourage people to give their time to strengthen communities and to design and deliver better services.
If you or your organisation is interested in getting involved with Time Credits, come along and find out more about how we help public services, businesses and community groups to innovate and build strong, resilient communities, giving people the tools to make positive and lasting changes in their lives.
Spice Time Credits have proven impact on a range of outcomes across community groups, schools, housing associations and specialist health and social care organisations.
At the event, Cambridgeshire County Council's Community Engagement Team will speak about the impact of Time Credits for the council, you'll hear from Time Credits earn and spend partners, and Spice will present key findings from their latest impact report “Positive Change in Challenging Times: How Spice Time Credits are creating system change”.
To date, Spice have worked with over 1,200 individuals in Cambridgeshire who have given over 18,000 hours of their time. The programme has seen huge benefits to the participants with 64% saying they are taking part in more community activity and over 50% being able to afford to do more. The impact of the programme has been recognised with an MJ Award for Excellence in Community Engagement.
