Southampton Timebank

Imagine a neighbourhood where:

  • people feel part of the community
  • people feel that neighbours look out for each other
  • people feel free to ask each other for help when they want it
  • people share their skills
  • people feel valued when they help each other out
  • people enjoy a full and meaningful life

Time Banking strengthens communities by drawing people together and by developing mutual friendships and support.

It is a way of creating a sense of neighbourliness and building communities. It is a rewarding and enjoyable way for people to come together to share their skills.

With Time Banking, people of all ages and abilities can join in and exchange a whole range of skills.

It benefits from the diversity of its membership so there are a wide variety of skills exchanged between members.
