I have worked in Plymouth supporting residents and community organisations at a grassroots and strategic level since 1995. I have a postgraduate diploma in Youth & Community Work having studied at Marjons in Plymouth.
I first became aware of Timebanking in 2011 and I was immediately struck by its simplicity but incredible power to have a positive lasting impact on people and communities. I was lucky enough to have met Edgar Cahn who is widely credited as the creator of Timebanking principles that we follow today. Meeting Edgar further cemented my belief that people are assets and everyone has something to offer, and when these skills and know-how are recognised and valued, good things happen.
Quite simply with Timebanking the possibilities are endless.
Timebank South West supports a citywide network of Timebank hubs and my role is to develop Timebank South West further, ensure our organisation stays true to its aims, raise the profile and promote the benefits of Timebanking and support our fantastic volunteers, staff and trustees.
On a personal level I love nature, painting, crafting, gaming and looking after my spoilt cat Indy.
