Tendring Time Bank

Welcome to Tendring Time Bank

At our Centre in Clacton-on-Sea, we run various activities, all chosen by members, including: Creative Writing, Maths and Money Management, Art, Family Research, Craft Groups and a drop in afternoon to play board games or cards.

Members are welcome to pop in for a chat and a cuppa whenever they are feeling the need for some company, or need some help or information.

Skills shared are wide and varied, and cover things such as Dog Walking, Companionship, Gardening and basic D.I.Y., Form Filling, WiFi Access, CV Writing, Facility for Job Searches and help with Applications. The DWP recommend jobseekers to join Time Banks in The Daily Jobseeker notifications.

Tendring is a large geographical area and our aim is to get community groups that are already running in some of the other areas, to become mini Time Banks, promote Time Banking amongst themselves and get other members in their locality to share skills in return for Time Credits, which can be used to get help where skills are lacking, or to donate to Beneficiary Members who may need more help.

Other volunteer organisations can join as Organisation Members, with their volunteers joining as individual Time Bank Members, who can then earn Time Credits for the volunteer work they already do, which they can then use to get something back for their volunteering or donate to their cause to build up a pot available for allocating to other needy people in the community.
