One-to-one skills exchanges are an important part of time banking. Everyone’s time is equal and everyone has something to share.
Here are some tips to help ensure your exchange requests are successful:
· Add your request on hOurworld, and/or write on the requests board at PLACE/Ladywell
· Go to our regular groups or activities, it’s a great opportunity to get to know
and ask other members for help as well as staying up-to-date with upcoming
events and activities
· Offer help to others. You’ll find people are more willing to help you if you
have offered help to others
· Call us when there’s something you need. Give as much notice and
detail as you can and ask her to add the request to the next newsletter.

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." RGTB Time Bank Member
