Time Bank Coordinator - Sutton Parish Council

We’re looking for a dynamic and pro-active individual to take on the role of Time Bank Coordinator at Sutton Parish Council.

The Sutton Time Bank is a project that allows members to give their time to other individuals and organisations in the local community and to get something back for themselves in return. For every hour participants ‘deposit’ in the Time Bank, perhaps by giving help and practical support to others, they are able to ‘withdraw’ equivalent support in time when they themselves are in need. The Time Bank aims to develop social capital in the local community and offers people the opportunity to learn something new, get practical help, meet new people and become more active.

As Time Bank Coordinator you will manage the day to day running of the Time Bank project by recruiting and training members, facilitating time exchanges, and initiating projects to involve participants in health, wellbeing and environmental improvements for themselves and their community.

If you are a skilled communicator, presenter, and relationship builder, and have proven administration and organisation skills together with a talent for working in partnership, then this is the role for you!

Youth Strategy East Cambs District Council

East Cambs District Council are in the next stage of their Youth strategy research. And they need your help.

ECDC compiled a Youth Strategy Questionnaire for children and young people in the Summer 2019 and had hundreds of responses across the district and their evaluation is now complete.

The strategy endeavours to identify and build upon the positive work currently being done and recognise what more can be done to continue to improve the lives of young people in East Cambs.

The findings highlighted a number of common themes (peer pressure, strangers, homework, services and facilities, transport and safety) that were of importance to youths across East Cambs. To ensure that the matters identified are understood, they would like to gather some further feedback on these particular matters and would very much appreciate your help again to achieve this.
