Welcome to Ladybarn Community Time Bank!
Time Banking recognises that everyone has a skill to share and that your community is full of residents with an amazing mix of skills and knowledge that you may not be aware of. It’s free to join and all you have to do is share a skill that you have and spend a bit of time helping someone else.
Everyone’s time and skills are valued equally. If you give an hour, you can get an hour back in help and support from another member of the Time Bank.
It’s really flexible and you can give as much or as little time as you like and you don’t have to commit to specific dates or times. No cash is involved at all. The only cost is your time.
Time Banking is not just for individuals. Community groups, schools and businesses are also welcome to get involved and share your skills, resources and equipment. It’s a great way to save money and promote your organisation throughout the Time Bank network!
There are lots of great reasons to get involved:
• Get to know your neighbours
• Help out in the community
• Gain access to help and services for free • Increase your self confidence
• Share your skills and learn new ones
• Make new friends
• Get out of the house • Improve your CV
• Complete relevant training courses • Attend social events and activities • HAVE FUN
These are just some of the ways you can get involved:
• Dog walking
• Cooking and Baking
• Basic DIY
• Giving someone a lift
• Running a session or an activity • Teaching another language
• Odd jobs
• The list is endless!
If you’d like to join make an appointment to meet with the Time Bank Coordinator.
We’ll have a chat about what you could offer and what help you’d like in return. There’s loads of ways that you could get involved, and more members means more services will be available.
