Echo is an Economy of Hours: a marketplace without the money. Echo members exchange the skills, services and resources they have for those that they need, using a currency called Echoes.
We’re an online marketplace, but our passion is in fostering offline connections, strengthening relationships in and between communities; relationships that we know are key to community cohesion and resilience, enabling people to live more empowered, creative and connected lives.
We’re now a network of 5500+ members, ranging from local residents right up to large corporates, all trading with Echoes.
We also support small businesses to flourish and grow via our business accelerator programme, Echo++, and help kickstart community-led social action projects via our civic incubator programme, the Community Chest.
