Timebank Administrator

About Timebanking

Timebanking is a community initiative which rewards volunteers with ‘time credits’ for the time they spend helping others. It’s a way for people to share their time and skills to help others in their local community, and then get the help they need in return. 

For each hour spent volunteering, a Time Bank member receives one virtual 'time credit', which they can then use to get the help they need, or donate it to others.

There are many things Time Bank members can help with, from simple DIY to sharing IT skills. It's free to join and open to anyone over 18, regardless of ability, skills or situation.
