We use a currency that rewards people for co-operating and
caring for each other and it costs us nothing to produce it.
Time is there to be used and we all start each day with an
equal supply, so why not use it?
Make it fun and make sure people are active so that they have
a plentiful supply of the good feelings that come from helping
others. Remember the greatest assets you have are the people
who are involved.
Some fundraising can help but don’t let one person take on the
burden themselves. There are many ways to raise money from
raffles to accepting donations. If the time bank is working
well and people enjoy being part of it, ask them to help with
fundraising events and fun sponsored activities.
Grant funding is out there but can be tricky to obtain.
Timebanking UK are looking constantly for opportunities to
share with our time banks so make sure you receive the
newsletter about the latest funding opportunities. These
messages are also posted in the Broker Facebook page.
People will come and go and people will be more and less
active at different periods in their lives. Don’t worry
