In April 2015, Fair Shares commissioned the University of Gloucestershire to evaluate the Impact of a New Model of Time Banking as a means of establishing evidence on whether the programme is a fulfilling its aims to proactively support (primarily) older people and those with long-term health conditions through small clusters at a localised level. The project aimed to: 1. Monitor changes in participants’ well-being and resilience; 2. Explore participants’ experiences of the time bank scheme, investigate the project’s impact on people’s lives, and gather feedback from participants; 3. Assess the project’s cost savings and value for money. A mixed methods approach was taken, involving case studies, focus groups and interviews, and development of a Social Return Assessment to identify and capture the appropriate outcomes experienced by participants, and to provide a value for money assessment of FS activities.
