Welcome to the Leighton-Linslade Timebank

We are an active and enthusiastic group of people in Leighton Buzzard and Linslade who come together in their local community to share their time, talents and skills.

The great thing about timebanking is that everyone has something to offer and everyone can take part no matter what skills or experience they have.

Timebanking operates on the principle that for every hour a person contributes they receive the equivalent in time credits. So for every hour you 'deposit' in a timebank, by giving practical help or support to another member, you can 'withdraw' an hour of support for yourself.

1 Hour = 1 Timebank Credit

What skills or services are shared?

  • Taking someone shopping
  • Gardening
  • Decorating/simple DIY
  • Helping with housework
  • Sewing/embroidery
  • Learn a language
  • Dog walking
  • Befriending
To name a few!

What are the benefits to me?

  • A flexible way of volunteering which can fit into your lifestyle
  • Getting help when you need it
  • Using and developing skills
  • Meeting new people and making friends in your community

But I don't have any skills to offer!

Something which you don't even think is a skill could be invaluable to another member. For example, companionship, having a chat or cup of coffee with a house bound member. Timebanking is open to everyone and everyone has something to offer - you'll be amazed at what you can do!

This is a description


Timebanking links people to share their time and skills. Everyone’s time is equal: one hour of help earns one time credit to spend when you need it. We operate with an asset-based philosophy that everyone has something to give to help another regardless of age, ability or background.
