LETS Groups: There are hundreds of independent LETS, timebanks and mutual trading schemes. These work similarly to CamLETS, namely through alternative currencies to the pound and allow individuals, groups and small businesses to exchange goods and services within their local community without the need for money. More information and listings of some local schemes from LETSLINK UK or Community Exchange System.
