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.
