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 at the Timebank from making cake,
picking up a prescription, walking a dog, doing some gardening, visiting
someone for a cup of tea, whatever you
do will make a difference to the person that needs your help.
You get a Timebank hour for helping, which you can use
to get something back. That may be help with your mobile or 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.
