What is Your Way?

Cornwall Council has awarded The Learning Partnership for Cornwall and IOS four contracts to deliver quality services for young people across Cornwall. Collectively known as Your Way the services now available are as follows:

  • Community Development
  • Information and Advice
  • Emotional Resilience
  • Timebanking

Your Way services are being delivered in partnership with Young People Cornwall, Xenzone-KOOTH, Penwith Community Development Trust and Volunteer Cornwall and will be jointly designed, developed and managed with young people.

The Time Banking service is available to all young people aged 11-19 in Cornwall and organisations who support young people. Young people can join the service directly or via a referral from an organisation, with whom they are involved.

How does it work?

Time Credit systems work on a simple hour-for-hour basis: for every hour you give to your community, you earn one Time Credit, which you can then bank and spend on an activity of your choice, or alternatively, gift to another person or donate to a community group or charity.
