I have lived in Plymouth all my life and I started working with communities eight years ago as part of a history project with Plymouth’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered communities.
The project highlighted for me how empowering and fun, it can be to bring a
community together and I have continued this work as a director of the “Pride in Plymouth” Community Interest Company and as a lecturer at Plymouth University.
I have been involved with Timebanking South West for several years now, in a
number of roles, and I continue to be amazed at how timebanking can bring all sorts of communities together.
