Rushey Green Time Bank

Vision
Our vision is to achieve a cohesive community in the Rushey Green area, where neighbours know neighbours and can rely on each other for help and support. Where people of different ages, cultures, backgrounds and abilities interact with each other on an equal footing and with mutual respect and understanding.

Mission
To empower the residents of Catford (including but not exclusively the patients of Rushey Green Group Practice) to improve their own health and sense of well-being, and thus improve the health of the Catford community as a whole.

Time Banking
Time Banking is a community development tool and works by facilitating the exchange of skills and experience within a community. It aims to build the ‘core economy’ of family and community by valuing and rewarding the work done in it. Time Banking values everyone’s time as equal, 1 hour equals 1 hour, or 1 credit. For every hour you spend helping someone in your community you are entitled to an hour of help in return. All manner of skills are recognized from walking with someone to baking a cake.
