Timebank

Timebanking is volunteering with a twist! It’s a project that supports and encourages people to help each other and a great way to be part of your community by offering your time and skills to others.  You can also ask for some help yourself – perhaps you need help with your garden?  In turn, you may be able to offer someone else some help, perhaps becoming a telephone buddy to a housebound person.  Let’s help build a community where everyone is respected and regarded as an asset!

Timebanking is for people from all ages and backgrounds and everyone’s time is valued equally.  One hour of your time is equal to one hour of someone else’s time so whatever service or skill you choose to exchange 1 hour = 1 time credit.  If you don’t need any help yourself you can donate the time credits you have earned to our Community Pot so that vulnerable people in our community get the help they need.

Timebanking can be for individuals or organisations. If you are an organisation or group why not become a mini-timebanks – it’s a great way to quickly and easily track the number of volunteer hours you are benefiting from.

Timebank members can share their skills and give their time to help in a wide variety of ways such as: Help with computers, teaching music, gardening, baking, painting, knitting……..and more!
