 Our Vision

A world where everyone feels part of a community

 

Our Mission

At Time & Talents our mission is to:

  • Increase the happiness and wellbeing of everyone in our community
  • Make sure no-one has to feel lonely, isolated or excluded, especially those most in need
  • Help people feel active, engaged and empowered
  • Build a strong sense of place, shared experience, and shared social capital
  • Help people help each other, by sharing their time and talents

Our Strategy

We deliver targeted services for those most in need in our community, and universal activities which work to bring all parts of our community together.

We deliver this through:

  • Groups to foster social relationships
  • Individual support for people in need
  • Activities to develop talents, confidence, skills
  • Projects to empower and improve our local community
  • Events to bring everyone together
  • Opportunities to help others and to get involved
  • Space for community activities

Our Core Beliefs

  • ‘Community’ doesn’t just happen, and communities have to work hard to make sure no-one is excluded
  • That connected people are happier, healthier, people
  • That people are happiest when they’re able to help others, and to receive help in return
  • That place matters, and people need to feel genuinely involved in the place they live.
  • That settlements are a powerful force for positive change – and the Settlement Movement is more relevant than ever
  • That threads of shared culture, identity, history – and most of all, fun! -bring people together

 

Our Values

We are:

Inclusive and empowering

Caring and supportive

Responsive and creative

Dynamic and resourceful

 

 

Due to the coronavirus crisis, both of Time & Talents’ venues are closed. However, our staff are still very much at work whilst working remotely. We are in regular telephone contact with hundreds of local people who usually come to T&T activities/groups, and are responding to urgent need wherever we can with our amazing existing volunteer team.

We’ve also been delighted at the volume of new volunteering applications we’re getting and we welcome more to apply here:

http://www.timeandtalents.org.uk/volunteering-application-form.

Staff are working as fast as they can to process these applications and then make hundreds of phone befriending matches, to keep our community connected and battle the isolation that this crisis is creating for many of us. Please visit our website News page for updates and call the team on 020 7231 7845 if you need us.

Best wishes
