The Time Bank is run by Stanley Development Trust as part of the Care and Wellbeing Project.


What is a Time Bank?

Timebanking is a free exchange of time and skills. People give an hour of their time to help someone and earn a ‘time-credit’ which can be exchanged for an hour of help for themselves. For each hour you give, you get something back. It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s free! Everyone’s skill is worth exactly the same regardless of the activity offered. Everyone is equal in a timebank!

1 hour = 1 time-credit



What skills can be exchanged?

Almost anything! Typical exchanges range from gardening or small DIY help, to dog-walking, baking, teaching crafts, music and IT. The timebank members decide what to exchange and as the timebank gets bigger, so does the pool of activities on offer.
