Your Step By Step Guide To Neighbourhood Timebanking


Not so long ago we all knew our neighbours and knew which of them would do us a favour if we asked them for one - and our neighbours knew if we would be happy to do them a favour in return.

Life has changed and our friends and family do not always live nearby and it is not so easy to ask neighbours for help these days, particularly if we do not know if we can ever pay them back.

Timebanking is a rewarding and enjoyable way to bring people together once again to share their skills. Just like in a babysitting circle, people get the help they need and help each other out by taking turns to be responsible for some of the care and practical support that we all need from time to time. The main difference is that with timebanking, people of all ages and all abilities can join in and exchange a whole range of skills.

Welcome to the world of neighbourhood timebanking.
