Time Credit Plan for Vulnerable Adults


Cornwall Council is searching for a development partner to help it create a new system of ‘Time Credits’ for a cohort of vulnerable adults.

Time Credits are a form of Time Banking. They are a proven means of encouraging people with complex needs to engage in volunteering and social action as part of building their confidence and social networks. We are looking for an experienced supplier to support the setup, development and growth of a local Time Credits model as well as the recruitment and training of a local Time Credits Co-ordinator who will oversee day to day operational management of the project. Our plan is to develop a model that will support active citizenship and community resilience through providing accessible volunteering opportunities for some of our most vulnerable people.

The Council is looking to use its arrangement with Bloom (previously called NEPRO), to source a development partner who can help us implement this approach locally. Tender documentation about this opportunity will go live via Bloom by the 16th June. Bloom is a private limited company that sources, appoints and manages consultancy and specialist professional service suppliers for the UK public sector. The decision to use Bloom to find a Time Credits development partner follows from the Council’s recent decision to award a brokerage contract with Bloom to source third party consultants. (See https://bloom.services/work-with-us/ for more information about Bloom).

Suppliers interested in tendering for the Time Credit development partner role should register with Bloom at https://www.pro-vide.net/#/register. To learn more about Bloom and the process of registration and accreditation, please contact bloom@cornwall.gov.uk
