Timebanking UK has been working with time banks since 2002, helping them to set up, develop and evaluate their impact. Our understanding of how timebanking can benefit people and organisations in a variety of settings continues to grow, thanks to diversity among the members of our time banks – and it’s a vital part of our job to share that knowledge and understanding.
We offer training days, inspirational and informative talks, and on-site support and interactive workshops on a range of topics. Although these are available at a discounted rate for our members, we offer training sessions to any organisation interested in exploring and developing timebanking.
Timebanking UK can help you plan, implement and develop a successful, sustainable time bank or help you to integrate timebanking into your organisation’s work.
