Tempo Time Credits is a charity serving communities across the UK by engaging, encouraging and enabling volunteers. We provide the glue which binds local voluntary partnerships and community-based solutions.
Tempo Time Credits galvanises community organisations to drive positive change for themselves and be more resilient through more individuals and more diverse groups of people volunteering. The Time Credits model is based on a fundamental principle that Volunteer’s time is valuable and should be valued.
Tempo Time Credits are the thread that connects volunteers, third sector, services, and businesses together through our projects and Tempo Time Credit networks. We do this through a digital time credit system that recognises and rewards volunteers for the hours they give. Volunteers can then exchange these for activities and experiences – like cinema tickets, entry to visitor attractions or a swim or gym session.

Everyone’s contribution – We encourage self-belief, mutual respect, and recognition.

Creativity – We are curious and inventive; we encourage fun and imagination to achieve this.

Integrity – We are authentic and honest. We take our commitments seriously and take accountability for delivery.
