Timebanking is a
way for local people to come together and help each other by exchanging knowledge, help and skills.
Everyone has something to offer a Timebank from making a cake,
picking up a prescription, walking their dog, doing some gardening, visiting
someone for a cup of tea, welcoming new residents to the village, whatever you
do will make a difference to the person that needs your help.
You get an hour’s time credit which you can use
to get something back. That may be help with your mobile/tablet, learning how
to hem a skirt, someone picking up a loaf of bread, or gaining some new skills.
Everyone’s time is equal, so one hour of my time
is equal to one hour of your time, irrespective of whatever we choose to
However it’s not just about giving and
receiving. Timebanking is also about bringing people together to build a
stronger, safer and happier community.
The exchanges can go on and on, as do the new friendships,
connections and networks that are made.
Members feel less isolated and more supported in their own community.
