Job description for TimeBuilder workers in Gleadless Valley.

What this role is about.

People tell us that they want to be useful and to use their brains, time and abilities to help others.  But it can be hard to find the right opportunities. This is where TimeBuilders comes in.

How it works

We’ve been running TimeBuilders across the city for about 5 years. In that time thousands of people have got involved in doing things including;

  • Helping to run a community café
  • Running a walking group
  • Helping in a gardening group
  • Litter picking
  • Making things in a community woodwork shop
  • Baking
  • Running a group doing sewing, art, creative writing or anything that interests you.

For each hour people work they earn a Time Credit which they can spend on rewards – tickets to go swimming or skating, for meals in a community café or for basketball, rugby, ice hockey or for the theatre.

And more than that, they find that lots of things in their lives become better. They feel more confident, useful, with a structure to their week and get to know more people. We all know that all these things are vital for a happy, healthy life.

Working in South Sheffield

We have started working in Gleadless Valley and Lowedges with Reach South Sheffield. We have done a lot of consultation with local people and the following new ideas are getting started. Since July we have gained 92 members who have earned over 2,000 Time Credits. We are currently working in the following areas:

 

Lowedges – where we have a new community café (Thursdays) as well as a Foodcycle (Wednesday afternoon) and a Teens Youth club.

 

Newfield Green – where we are working to develop a new community café and other groups working from Newfield Green Library and the Terry Wright Centre

 

Gleadless Valley (Gaunt Shops) – where we are working with Gleadless Valley Methodist Church and have set up a weekly FoodCycle meal where volunteers cook surplus food to make a 3 course meal for isolated people in the community.

 

In each of these places we now want to set up the following activities: a Weightwatchers group; exercise groups; a walking group; art and craft groups; a sewing group; a photography group; a film club; a litter picking group… And many more.
