ItsyourWales is a Community of Passion that utilises FreeTimePays digital engagement and social media to deliver real change and positive social impact.

ItsyourWales is a digital space for people who are passionate about Wales and want to do whatever they can to help their country, their community and themselves.

At ItsyourWales, we help connect people where passions are shared; we give people FREE access to their very own digital space where they can promote their passion; and we recognise people for the contributions they make through the allocation of Passion Points. Interested? Connect with us HERE.

The reach of FreeTimePays is huge and is growing with Communities of Passion being rolled out across the world. 

Companies and organisations keen to support People with Passion play an essential role and we have a range of partnership, sponsorship and advertising packages available.

We can even go as far as to set groups and networks up with their own portal so they can grow their own branded Community of Passion linked to their own website or social media account.

View our Partnership arrangements or connect with us HERE.

Now let's show you what you get with FreeTimePays. 

FreeTimePays

FreeTimePays is an impact focused digital platform and social media channel specifically for people who want to make a difference and create a positive social and economic impact.

FreeTimePays is the social media of choice for 'People with Passion'.

With FreeTimePays, we help people take their passion to the next level by giving them access to a suite of digital tools and applications.

There are three components to FreeTimePays.

There’s Community Passport, Community Workspace and Community Matchmaker. Operating right across the platform in recognition of the valuable contribution being made by users is FreeTimePays gamification. This takes the form of points and rewards for passions shared.

FreeTimePays is here for people who really want to become involved in their community or with their particular passion and for those people who are really serious about making a difference. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the great ideas with those who have the potential to turn an idea into something that really does make a difference.

Community Passport

Passport is a personal space which registered members can make their own. With a passport, members can choose to get involved with their passion and participate in many different ways.

They can view regular content and posts; sort and save this content by type or by passion; they can collect points for giving their views through polls and surveys, attend events or even join a discussion.

With a FreeTimePays Community Passport, members can follow inspiring people and they can learn more about their community and their passion by following regular ‘Did you Know’ features. And the more they decide to do and the more they get involved, the more points they collect and the greater the opportunity to take up offers and win prizes.

Community Workspace

With their unique Community Workspace, FreeTimePays is able to help those who are inspired and serious about taking things to the next level. FreeTimePays will give these people their own access rights environment where they can work on their idea or project.

In this digital space they can work alone, or bring in others to share in building evidence, acquiring knowledge and developing plans. This is the ideal space for working on the business; working on the idea; working on the initiative.

A range of facilities and tools can be found in workspace and users can effectively utilise this space for collating documents, photos, videos and web links, for opening up discussion and chat with others, or for running surveys and analysing results.

Community Matchmaker

The whole focus and rationale for FreeTimePays is MAKING A DIFFERENCE. It’s our job at FreeTimePays to provide the tools and functionality that helps bring together those who create the GREAT IDEAS with those who have the potential to turn an IDEA into something that really does MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Matchmaker is where the dreamers can join with the dream makers – with those who are more than happy to put their support, their resources, their connections, and their wealth of experience behind the idea and behind the passionate people responsible for coming up with the idea.

These are the community drivers, the investors, the philanthropists, the funders of great initiatives, the Lottery, and those from local government and the public sector who are responsible for the provision of public services.

These are the people and the organisations who are in positions of making things happen for those who are passionate and inspired to want to make a difference.

For more detail on what is provided by FreeTimePays connect HERE.

ItsYourWales

ItsYourWales will grow as a shared space for the many individuals, communities and businesses that will want to connect and share in their passion for their community.

Their work, their ideas and their proposals can be pulled together in the one collaborative space giving them access to a huge resource bank for sharing images, documents and web links. 

In this space people can chat in a secure environment if they wish; they can set up and promote events; or they can communicate with any of the FreeTimePays Communities through creating and submitting posts.

We would be delighted to tell you more.

Contact Jonathan Bostock at jonathan.bostock@freetimepays.com or connect HERE with FreeTimePays for more information on sharing your passion for Wales.

The Animal Wall at Cardiff Castle

If you are visiting Cardiff Castle it's worth walking along the wall towards the entrance to Bute Park and having a look at the wonderful masonry sculptures of various exotic animals that appear to be sat, stood and climbing over the parapet.

It is called the 'Animal Wall' and was designed by William Burges.

Public Service Boards and FreeTimePays - delivering positive social impact across Wales

Public Service Boards have a major role to play in the engagement of communities, the collaboration of service providers and the provision of services that meet community need.

Public Service Boards have a major role to play in the engagement of communities, the collaboration of service providers and the provision of services that meet community need. FreeTimePays as a digital engagement channel and as a space for collaborative working has teamed up with PSBs across Wales to ensure local communities have access to the most advanced tools for delivering positive social impact.


 

FreeTimePays has produced a unique channel for the engagement of people across Wales, the collaboration of service providers and the delivery of positive social impact. Public Service Boards are ideal partners and we have teamed up with PSBs across Wales to provide the tools required. 

 

 

FreeTimePays is an on-the-go engagement solution that can be accessed on all devices from mobiles to laptops.

 

FreeTimePays.wales (.cymru) is a digital space devoted to creating positive social impact across Wales by engaging people (and organisations) in shared Welsh passions. All of this supports community cohesion and promotes a greater sense of social responsibility.

 

 

Let us show what we have created and how, as a PSB, you can take forward and deliver successful engagement across your community.

 

 

We have engaged with a large and active community and we have a successful and growing campaign underway using social media delivered nationally via ItsyourWales.  

Tap into the engaged community we are growing and let's grow one for you and your PSB.  

 

 

We are all about making a difference and helping people who share passions and make a difference for themselves, for their family and within their community.

 

 

For people who get involved, share passions and help make a difference, the option exists to run a form of gamification that rewards people and recognises the time they are prepared to put in. 

 

 

ItsYourWales is a national engagement channel that has been running since 2016. Those people engaging with ItsyourWales and the community which has been built and is growing is accessible to Public Service Boards.  

 

 

Over 20 passions are promoted at ItsYourWales and ItsYourWales can be scaled to engage with people at a regional or local community level.

 

 

 

In October  2015, at the time we commenced the design and build phase of FreeTimePays, a twitter account was set up in order to build a community of passion across Wales.

 

@itsyourWales has quickly become the most popular account of its type on twitter, achieving almost 1M impressions every month, with a following that’s increasing at 1K every month.

 

 

ItsYourWales and a growing number of engagement sites across Wales are already being powered by FreeTimePays digital technology.

 

 

FreeTimePays is a unique social media channel and collaborative environment and is the result of 18 months design & build.

 

FreeTimePays satisfies the demand of social media users for a space that provides a variety of functions that, up until now, has only been possible by combining different social media channels.

 

 

Community Passport gives people their own personalised space where they can demonstrate their passion, engage in activities and collect points for sharing passions.

 

 

Community Workspace is a secure access rights environment where people can work on their  projects (alone or with others) and make a positive impact within their community.

 

 

Community Matchmaker exists so that champions of great ideas can take their idea and their passion to the next level. They can share and collaborate with other people on their great ideas.

 

They can consider and access alternative funding channels. The idea can even be packaged and a pitch prepared giving project access to investors, philanthropists, the lottery and/or crowd-funders.

 

 

People, communities and stakeholders can choose to interact with the FreeTimePays platform and make use of the digital space in many different ways.

 

 

 

Gamification is a key feature of the FreeTimePays digital space and is flexible and adaptable. Should a PSB decide to run with some form of gamification and reward and recognise people for helping to make a difference, then this can be designed and introduced to suit the PSB and community.

 

 

 

 

This is only the start of our journey. The digital journey we have mapped out embraces all that’s new and engaging. Come on the journey with us, help us grow communities of influence, create real and positive impact and generate the return and reward from being one of our partners in Wales.
