Don't fancy formal volunteering?

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!

Micro-Volunteering is coming soon…
