Timebanking

Do you have skills that you would like to share? Would you like to learn something new?

Join the Basildon, Billericay & Wickford Time Bank and be part of a growing community of people sharing their skills and time with others. Whatever your passion or expertise, everyone has something to offer.

Through Timebanking you can:

• Choose when and how often you would like to volunteer
• Offer your skills and spare time to help others
• Support family, friends, neighbours and meet new people
• Bank the hours you volunteer and ask for help in return

How does timebanking work?

1 hour = 1 Time Credit
For every hour you volunteer, you earn one ‘Time Credit’. You can then use this to ask for help in return, or donate it to our ‘Community Pot’ where it will be used to help others in the community.

Everyone’s time is valued equally
You can decide what skills you can offer and everyone’s time is equal. So one hour of your time is equal to one hour of someone else’s time.

Timebanking is for everyone
It’s free to become a member of the Time Bank and it’s open to anyone aged 18 or over, regardless of ability, skills or situation and all help is free!

Join us and discover just how rewarding time banking can be!
