Get Involved – Timebanking

In our experience, when we work with customers and service users to harness their skills, knowledge and creativity, we are able to achieve more together than we possibly could by working by ourselves.

That’s why we are so excited to be working closely with people who want to develop Time Currencies in Cambridgeshire.

If you would like to find out how to join your local Timebank, or would like to set up a Timebank in your community, please contact us on newhorizons@chsgroup.org.uk and follow the Cambridgeshire Timebanking Partnership on twitter.

         

How does ‘Timebanking’ work?

It provides a way for local 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. So, one hour of time given gains you one hour of ‘credit’.

What are ‘Time Credits’?

The scheme is simple: if you spend one hour helping your community, you will earn one time credit. Time credits can be exchanged for a variety of things, from exercise classes to cinema and theatre tickets. Find out more about how time credits work on the Spice time credits website.
