What is Timebanking?

TimeBanking is a way of bringing people in a community together to help each other out by doing jobs, favours or tasks. Any person in the community can join - it's for people of all ages and abilities.

For every hour of your time you give to help a fellow TimeBank member, you get an hour's credit that you can then claim when you need something in return!

Other members of the TimeBank repay you with their own time.

1 hour = 1 time credit

You give a few hours of your spare time when you can, doing things you enjoy.

You also have the opportunity to get some help for yourself when you need it.

No money changes hands - it costs nothing to join and it costs nothing to take part. When you get help from the Timebank, it costs you nothing!

Timebanking involves a wide range of skills and activities
