Following our work with DWP, we have started to see real results. Here is a bit of feedback to one of our time banks from a Jobcentre Plus.
They are now seeing they have got a future and their health and disabilities are not clouding their belief and daily lives in a totally negative way.
I hope it will go from strength to strength for all the people of Barnet as this is definitely a way forward for many people to improve their lives, lessen isolation and increase positive interaction within communities.”
We look forward to our continuing collaboration, helping more people.
The DWP have recently released some more documentation promoting timebanking and Timebanking UK.
Timebanking UK are working closely with the DWP to help improve peoples “employability”.
