Timebanking Exchanges

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.

 
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." RGTB Time Bank Member

If you are a member and would like to participate  in one-to-one exchanges with other time bank members it’s important that you read and follow these new guidelines.
