What is the Time Bank?
It is a way for people to help others in their community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of time you give helping someone, you receive one time credit. The Time Bank will also be running fun, free activities in partnership with the local community.
What can you do with your time credits?
You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. You can give them to another person who needs some help. Or you can save them to use.
Who can join the Time Bank?
Age, ability, lack of finance or limited mobility are not barriers to participating in the time bank. Look inside for the ways in which you can get involved.
