Funders & Partners

Each of our Time Banks is funded by a combination of funding, including grants, donations and earned income. We are a resourceful organisation and believe that we deliver great value for money.

Some of our main funders include The Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief and Children in Need. We are also proud to be supported by many other charities and trusts.

We are very keen to find ways to become sustainable.

Partnership working is part of the Fair Shares ethos and we have been part of some successful consortium and partnership bids.

If you are an organisation looking for potential partners and want to know more about how we work please contact us on either or call on 01452 415 900.

How can we prove time banking works?

We believe in time banking, and we know first-hand that it works. However, we understand that it’s asking a lot of prospective funders to take that final step in becoming a permanent supporter of Fair Shares, so we’ve provided some cold, hard evidence to illustrate its success! 

Below you will find records of evaluations we have had carried out in previous years, as well as plans for future ones.
