St. Asaph Time Bank
What is Time Banking?
A time bank is a new and exciting way for people to come together to help others and help themselves at the same time. Participants ‘deposit’ their time in the bank by giving practical help and support to others and are able to ‘withdraw’ their time when they need something done themselves.
Giving and Receiving Time
Time banks measure and value all the different kinds of help and skills we can offer each other. In a time bank, everyone becomes both a giver and a receiver.
Everyone’s time is valued equally : One hour = 1 time credit
Participants can spend their time credits on the skills and support of other participants when they need a helping hand.
People help each other out with everything from making phone calls to sharing meals and giving lifts to the shops – anything that brings them together:
help when you need it ~ DIY ~ help with the kids ~ trips out ~ exercise ~ making friends ~ shopping ~ new grandparents ~ talking on the phone ~ having a break ~ gaining new skills ~ crafts ~ going to the park ~ cooking ~ getting to know your neighbours
