The Hero

TimeBuilders is Sheffield's innovative time-banking initiative that rewards volunteers for their skills, energy and time with time credits to spend on experiences.

The Story

The TimeBuilders team were working with the University of Sheffield to evaluate the project so it could be reproduced in other local areas. They needed a simple, visual way of explaining their collaboration, why the project works and the theory behind activities to stakeholders and funders.


The Outcome

I produced a 5 page visual story work pack that walks audiences through the evaluation process, the academic theory behind the programme and how this translates to volunteers’ experience on the ground. This has been used with stakeholders and volunteers to understand the programme, and has been influential in securing funding for future projects.

The Feedback

"The graphic is an excellent and helpful way of communicating a fairly abstract set of ideas and making them applicable." Graham Duncan, TimeBuilders Manager
