“After first finding out that the time bank existed, and what it was, it seemed like a good way to get more involved with the local community, meet like-minded people, and generally get more involved in (what I have now discovered) is a thriving local community” Member feedback.
My Timebanking Exchange Experience
 

"As a member of the Time Bank I had first-hand experience of receiving the personal touch to my house. As a disabled member, I was very grateful to have a fellow timebanker offer their services of tidying up my home. She delivered that personal touch with care and attention, and along the way we had a good natter too.
I realise this service is invaluable to all, as we share our skills and services in
the community. It’s a worthwhile scheme and the people that I have met to date all share the same qualities such as care and consideration. I hope that I too can be of benefit to others out there and hope that the service continues in leaps and bounds."
