How it’s work? In 3 steps…

  1. When members join they provide details of the skills and expertise they would like to share and details of activities that they would like to avail of.
  2. Then, the Timebroker will meet with representatives from your organisation to gain an insight into how the Timebank can best support your organisation and how your organisation is best placed to help other groups across the community.
  3. Volunteer Now will contact your organisation when a suitable match can be made. You decide when an exchange is right for you.

Zoom in the advantages for your organisation

Organisation Timebank

It promotes equality
An hour equals an hour, the same rules apply to everyone – this gives everyone access to the same resources, networks and opportunities as well as enabling all to contribute. Not everyone may wish to utilise the resource in the same way but access to opportunity is important.

It saves money
At a time when we can’t pay for new ‘stuff’ we should be using the ‘stuff’ we have in more creative ways. Timebanking offers a multiplier effect – a means of exchange that works with abundance, not scarcity, recognising the value of all contributions.

New relationships
By exchanging assets with people and organisations, individuals are meeting new people, learning new skills, forging new relationships, helping to build new networks and develop exciting new opportunities.

Timebanking across organisations provides a positive mechanism for organisations to engage with others and provides an easy platform to enable the development of partnerships and shared opportunities.

Co-production
People can! The power to make changes in communities rests with people, people that our organisations represent or support. General Timebanks create an environment for this to happen, for people to co-design services that they are a part of. By creating opportunities for everyone to contribute, participate and take, we are at the forefront of developing a  new infrastructure service.

A project in development - together we are stronger …
