Time Banking allows communities to grow hour by hour by bringing people together to share skills and getting things done at the same time.
Participants 'deposit' their time in the bank by offering practical help and support to others and in return are able to 'withdraw' from the time and skills offered by other community members. People help each other out with everything from making phone calls to sharing meals and giving lifts to the shops - anything that brings them together. This way neighbors help neighbors and at the same time earn credit to use when they need support in their own lives.
Everyone's time is valued equally: One hour = 1 time credit. So get involved and go and find your local Time Bank!
