We build communities, with communities, for communities

Services that start with what the community has to offer have a greater opportunity to make an impact.

Partner with us to design and deliver co-produced programmes that utilise your local skill set and invite individuals to give back to the community.

We work in partnership with local authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups, housing, service providers and grant funders to build, develop and support communities. Together we co-produce solutions, encouraging more active involvement in the design and delivery of services and community-led activities.

What our commissioners think

We asked Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Borough Council how he believes their partnership with Tempo Time Credits has encouraged more of their residents to take an active involvement in their community.

WHY BECOME A COMMISSIONER

Drive engagement in service

Our Tempo Time Credits can:

  • Help you engage with key target audiences to meet specific goals e.g. reducing loneliness, increasing participation of vulnerable adult groups or engaging service users. 
  • Enable these groups to develop their employability skills in a range of areas – soft skills, transferable skills, communication skills – and give back to their communities at the same times.
