Supporting the Sheffield Community
We face many multi-faceted problems in society
Wicked problems which just won't go away
Loneliness, unemployment and poverty to name a few
We need a different sort of response: new ways of seeing and doing things. Ways which release the untapped creativity and potential of the people who experience these problems.
This is the space that the TimeBuilders project occupies: innovating and exploring these issues, trying to find new ways of tackling entrenched and chronic social problems.
Our work is based on 3 key rules which we have gleaned from 6 years of practice and reflection and learning from others who think about these things too.
When people achieve goals they feel capable of doing more
. Relationships, relationships, relationships
People are motivated when they feel rewarded
