LETS is a way of exchanging goods & services with other people in the community without the need for money.
Local Exchange Trading Schemes help regenerate communities and rebuild the local economy. There are many LETS Schemes running successfully throughout the world.
||LETS is run by and for local people creating wealth that stays within the area. It puts people in touch with a great variety of resources & skills.|
||LETS is based on the idea of barter, but it is more flexible, and much more effective as there's no need to find a 1-to-1 exchange.|
||LETS uses cashless trading. Wealth is created directly through trade, no interest is charged and everybody benefits equally.|
||LETS is a not-for-profit unincorporated membership club. Everybody has skills and someone out there needs yours!|
|Truro LETS launched in June 2010 to provide all the benefits of LETS for the surrounding area. Its unit of exchange is known as the "Talent".|
Unfortunately due to lack of volunteers willing to manage the group effectively, Truro LETS is currently inactive and not meeting regularly. We suggest you join the neighbouring groups in Falmouth or Camborne/Redruth if you wish to join a functioning LETS group in mid Cornwall.
