Tempo Time Credits and Medway Council
An incredible programme and one we are very proud of here at Tempo Time Credits. Since its introduction, the Medway programme has gone from strength to strength and had a huge impact on all of the communities involved, making a difference to each volunteer, charity and voluntary organisation and recognition partner involved.
Tempo Time Credits were introduced in Medway in February 2017 as part of Involving Medway, an initiative commissioned by Medway CCG (Medway Clinical Commissioning Group), now Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group. Involving Medway was established to explore effective ways of engaging local community-based groups and residents, in order to promote better health and wellbeing and to help transform local services. It was directly inspired by the Five Year Forward View, which set a new course for health policy. It recognised an urgent need for radical innovation in the health and social care system to avoid catastrophic failure – and called for the NHS to get serious about prevention, to empower patients, to engage communities and to build a social movement for health and care. By working with Tempo Time Credits, Involving Medway aims to create volunteering opportunities across Medway and recognise the contribution that the volunteers in the area make.
We are immensely proud of what has been achieved through this programme and are excited to see what future impact we can continue to make together in Medway.
