Join our Time Bank to exchange time and skills, benefiting you, your neighbours and your local community!

What is Time Banking? 

Time Banking works by facilitating the exchange of skills and experience within a community.  Time Banking values everyone's time as equal, 1 hour equals 1 hour. For every hour you spend helping someone in your community you are entitled to an hour of help in return. Help can be in many forms - performing practical tasks, befriending someone, running errands, gardening, running a class. It builds social networks of people who give/receive support from each other, enabling people from different backgrounds to come together and form connections and friendships.

Rushey Green Time Bank 

Rushey Green Time Bank started 20 years ago and has developed a number of different projects that you can discover on this website and more so if you can get involved!

Join our Community! 

Our Time Bank is a community of diverse people who can find a project or a space where they can spend time and share skills with others as they wish. Whilst the exchange of skills is a core aspect of time banking, our members are often in the time bank for the relationships and shared experiences of belonging, and feeling useful and valued in the projects and activities they partake in. By getting involved, our members help shape the ethos and values of the time bank.
