Timebanks work by allowing people to help each other within their communities.
Timebank users can offer their own skills and benefit from the skills of others who’ve offered theirs. The more people who contribute to a timebank by ‘depositing’ their skills, the more there’ll be for people to share.
Absolutely anyone can join a timebank – from individuals and community groups to local businesses. Signing up is easy and free, and people can offer their own skills and talents when they want to. In return, they can access and make use of the skills of other timebank members whenever they need them.
As timebanking is so flexible, and as there are no limits to how often someone can use the scheme or how much they can offer to others, it really does suit everyone. Additionally, it allows those already active in their neighbourhoods to record the work they’re doing (especially important for funding bids!) while enabling them to seek out the services of others when they need them.
