Welcome to Settle Timebank!

Timebanking recognizes that everyone has a skill, knowledge, support or help to share. Our community is full of people with an amazing mix of skills and knowledge that you may not be aware of. It’s free to join and all you have to do is share a skill that you have and spend a bit of time helping someone else.

Everyone’s time and skills are valued equally. If you give an hour, you can get an hour back in help and support from another Timebank member.

It’s really flexible and you can give as much or as little time as you like. No cash is involved it only ‘costs’ your time.
