York Timebank - Fair shares for York.
A Timebank is a way for you to get involved in your community through exchanging skills & knowledge, & be rewarded for it – in time credits. Everyone’s time is valued equally. For every hour you give helping someone, you receive one time credit.
What can you do with your time credits?
You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. Time credits are banked on our 'Time Online' system for you to spend when you need, or you give them to someone else.
Who can join a Timebank?
Anyone across the City can join, as everybody has something to offer.
Timebanking is a means of exchange build for abundance – for the assets that lie dormant in people and organisations. By bringing these assets to life, and allowing people equitable access to them, we no longer need to talk about a resource crisis. We say that People Can!
Click on the link below to join! Once you've done this we like to meet up for a chat and to help you set up your profile on Time Online. We will also ask you for 2 people to act as referees, they can be neighbours, partners and friends. This is just as a safeguarding measure to ensure that we follow Timebank UK procedures.
