Falmouth Local Exchange Trading Scheme
LETS are about local trading without the need for money or credit, using human capital. LETS are open to all, and all kinds of skills are both valued and needed. They are grassroots schemes and need no specialist skills to operate.
Falmouth LETS has been in action since 1993. It is a great way of meeting new friends and restoring a sense of self worth and belonging, particularly for unemployed people and those who are retired or new to the area. The Falmouth scheme is currently (as of 2002) at 75+ members, including several households and other community organisations. We hold regular socials where people can meet and trade.
See the Falmouth LETS website for more information, including directory of skills available, and contacts for other LETS in Cornwall.
