Our time bank is a community of diverse people who can find a project or a space where they can spend time and share skills with others as they wish. Whilst the exchange of skills is a core aspect of timebanking, our members are often in the time bank for the relationships and shared experiences of belonging, and feeling useful and valued in the projects and activities they partake in. By getting involved, our members help shape the ethos and values of the time bank.
The TBUK demo time bank is a great place for you to visit when you′re just starting out on your timebanking journey. Our exchanges are very varied and we also offer lots of group activities too. We’re located in the heart of the Five Valleys in Gloucestershire, so our walking groups enjoy some beautiful scenery. Our community events are also popular… and we’re always on the lookout for new faces to be part of our timebanking family, helping their neighbourhood an hour at a time!
Lee Fair Share covers Lee and Hither Green and has been going for over ten years. We are keen to recruit new members as we believe everyone has skills to share, for example, gardening, befriending, DIY. In return you get an opportunity to ask for some help or attend the classes, groups, activities run by Lee Fair Share. At the moment we offer Coffee, Cake and Company, two walking groups – Hare (for the less mobile) and Tortoise (for faster walkers), French, two bookclubs, chair exercise and pilates.
For more information about joining the Timebank or about our classes/groups please contact us.
Your spare time is valuable so invest it well.
We are a timebanking project which aims to tackle the social isolation faced by adults in the Liverpool area who live with mental health problems. The project takes a new approach by supporting individuals to engage with their local community, access services and rebuild their confidence.
