Timebanks

Our Monmouthshire

Our Monmouthshire Time Bank is a way for people in Monmouthshire to share their time and skills. Timebanking is all about doing what you enjoy, at a time that suits you – and getting a little help when you need it, too. When you join the time bank, you use our online platform to put up offers and requests of ways to share time.

If you enjoy DIY for example, you might see a request for someone to paint a garden fence. You’d arrange to do this through the platform, and spend an hour doing it. You earn a timebanking hour – you can then spend this at your time bank on a skill that’s being offered by other members of your time bank; maybe learning the guitar, or getting some company when you go for a walk.

You can also use Our Monmouthshire’s platform to tell people about your community events and to share news. This is your online community, a friendly and open place to share your stories and events.

Our Monmouthshire Time Bank aligns with Our Monmouthshire’s Wellbeing Plan, supporting communities and business to be part of a thriving and well-connected county.

We can achieve this with the aid of timebanking, where skills are traded one hour at a time, with everyone’s hour being equal. Giving members access to resources they may never normally be able to afford – especially when money is not always readily available.

Timesight London

For every hour’s help a member gives another, they receive one timebanking hour, which they can spend on receiving help. You might be able to give another time bank member a massage, help them with their mail, or chat to them on the phone for an hour or so. In turn, you might spend your timebanking hour on learning a language or instrument, or getting some help in your garden.
