Bristol Pound – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bristol Pound is managed by the non-profit Bristol Pound Community Interest Company in collaboration with the local financial institution, the Bristol Credit Union. The Bristol Credit Union ensures that every physical £1 converted to a printed £B1 is backed in a secure trust fund. The scheme is supported by Bristol City Council.[16]

Bristol Pound is part of a larger international movement of local currencies. The European funded Community Currencies in Action partnership provides support for communities which want to develop their new currency and works on innovations.[17] Within the UK, Bristol Pound CIC founded and maintains the Guild of Independent Currencies – a platform for sharing experiences about local currencies. In this framework, Bristol CIC is currently working with Exeter, amongst others, helping it to launch its own local currency; the Exeter Pound.[9]
