Focus on health: Llais Time Credits – working with older people

ABMU Health Board, Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and NPT CVS are working in partnership with Spice to pilot Time Credits in the Upper Swansea and Amman Valley areas as part of its plan for improving the lives of frail older people. The pilot period will run from December 2014 to March 2015 with a view to growing the programme following this initial period of consultation and piloting.

Why is this co-production?

  • The project will be co-designed with the older people themselves, and in collaboration with the health board and third sector partners.
  • It will take an asset-based approach, building on people’s strengths and valuing the resources of the whole community.
  • It will use time-credits to encourage reciprocity and relationships of trust.
