Time Banking UK

Time Banking UK's vision is of a world in which people may have all they need for their own well being by contributing what they can to building communities, caring for the marginalized, bringing up healthy children and fighting social injustice.

Time banking provides an opportunity for people to volunteer and participate in their community in a way that traditional volunteering does not provide. 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 use their credits at a later date. Everyone's contribution is valued equally and everyone both gives and receives support.

Our key objectives are to:
• educate and inform individuals about the theory and practice of time banking
• promote the use of time banks throughout the United Kingdom
• educate and inform individuals about co-production so as to encourage participatory democracy
