Alan Butler


Alan is a co-director of the Pride in Plymouth Community Trust, a Volunteer and Community Engagement officer with the National Trust, a lecturer at Plymouth Marjon University and the LGBTQ+ Community Builder Lead in the city of Plymouth.

He has over ten years’ experience in creating an archive of people’s lived experience in the city and used it as part of his PhD study. As a result, he strongly believes that by enabling people to consider their life stories/heritage, and how they relate to the communities which they are part of, they can create real change.

The aims and work of Timebank South West align very clearly here and he is excited to be able to help support the development of Timebanking in the city.
