Time bank volunteering is about people helping people

Timebank is a great way to be part of the community and to offer your skills or spare time to help others. Every hour you give earns you a credit which you can spend on receiving help or support yourself. If you want to, you can also donate your credits to a community pot for someone else.

1 Hour = 1 Time Credit

How does it work?

For every hour you ‘deposit’ in a Time Bank, you can ‘withdraw’ the equivalent back in support when you need it.

Time Bank members can offer help or support with:

  • shopping or doing simple errands
  • decorating and simple DIY home repairs
  • teaching languages
  • companionship and visits
  • cooking
  • helping with computers
  • gardening and much more

Everyone has something to offer, whether they are qualified, in a trade or they just want to lend a hand. Maybe you’re good at computers, handy with a drill or can run errands.

Everyone’s time is valued equally

If you already volunteer then you will make an ideal Time Bank member. You can use your volunteer hours and bank them as credits. Timebanking can be for individuals or organisations, and there’s also the opportunity for groups to become mini-time banks and build their own community pots.

All new Time Bank members receive 2 free Time Credits
