This is an application from GAVO to pilot a one-to-one time banking project in the village of Sudbrook (as lead agency on a multi-agency partnership initiative) for a bespoke skills swap/time-banking project for the Vale of Usk.
Time-banking has long been of interest across the County, and Mon CC’s Changing Practice, Changing Lives Lead and the Community and Partnership Development Lead are keen to support progress towards its development in the Vale of Usk. GAVO have been recognised as the preferred lead agency, to develop and host a project that focuses upon skill swapping and good citizenship. The project is in line with time-banking methods and sits within the Third Sector. The current focus upon personal responsibility in terms of Health and Wellbeing, interest in social and corporate responsibility and the wider strategic landscape, signals the time is right to pilot such a project within Monmouthshire. The aim is to create more cohesive communities.
