A bank but not as you know it
Time banking is about creating a web of connection between individuals with every exchange of skills is an opportunity to give and receive and to build a stronger community.
The guiding principle is that there are no throw away people and is based on the work of Edgar Cahn, founder of Time Banking in the United States.
Time banking is a form of community skills swapping where no money is exchanged, just time.
So what skill would you like to share?
Everyone has skills to offer.
Things that we are good at, things we enjoy.
Sometimes people feel they have no spare time however if we do things we like and get another member to do the things we don’t enjoy so much - everyone benefits!
Offers and requests could be cooking, sewing, gardening, childminding, transport, wood stacking, computer help, music lessons, storytelling, and companionship.
Everyone has a skill to share.
Sign up and we'll email you the latest Project Lyttelton news, events and information.
