Time & Talents Association
‘To help create a world where everyone feels part of a community – and where nobody feels lonely, or left behind.’
ABOUT US: 

Time & Talents is a lively, busy community organisation based Rotherhithe, Canada Water and Bermondsey. Set in a leafy heritage venue in an old mortuary (which is much nicer than it sounds!), as well as in T&T2, our second venue in Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, Time & Talents has something for everyone.

 

We have a history stretching back 135 years. Since day one we’ve been supporting local people of all ages, and bringing people together for mutual support, fun and friendship. With a wide range of activities at our centres, along with volunteering and schools’ outreach projects across local neighbourhoods, we work to help everyone feel part of a community.

 

We see a core part of our work as providing ways for people to connect and share their time and talents, including a wide range of volunteering opportunities, skills-sharing, and opportunities to socialise. We want to connect neighbours close and far, to reduce isolation and build a supportive, resilient community.

 

Our mission
‘To help create a world where everyone feels part of a community – and where nobody feels lonely, or left behind.’

 

Our goals

  • 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.

 

How we deliver this

  • 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.
WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

At Time & Talents, we want to create a world where everyone feels part of a community – and where nobody is left out, or left behind.

OUR VALUES: 
We believe that ‘community’ doesn’t just happen, and that communities have to work hard to make sure no one is excluded. We think connected people are happier, healthier people, and that people are happiest when they’re able to help others and receive help in return. We also know that place matters, and people need to feel genuinely involved in the place where they live.
