Time Bank Member

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.

Because Time banks are just systems of exchange, they can be used in an endless variety of settings, so the more people who contribute to a Time bank, the more services will be on offer.

Time bank members can offer voluntary activities such as:

•shopping or doing simple errands

•decorating and simple DIY home repairs

•teaching languages

•companionship and visits

•cooking

•helping with computers

•gardening and much more

Plus many, many more activities not included on the list.

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 and you can sign up at any time during your current volunteering and bank those hours.

You can use your volunteer hours and bank them as credits to either get support from other people, or to put them in the Thurrock community pot to help vulnerable people such as the elderly who may not have the credits to get help or support from others.

Timebanking can be for individuals or organisations, and there's also the opportunity for organisations and groups to become mini-time banks and build their own community pots.

Skills

Everyone has something to offer, whether they are qualified, in a trade or they just want to lend a hand.
