Timebank Member Chelmsford

← Back to search results

Do you want to volunteer but cannot commit a regular time each week? Then Timebanking may be the volunteering solution for you.

Timebanking is a way for members of the community to help other members of the community through offering their time to support others. It could be helping someone with some gardening, going shopping with someone to offer them support, social visits to the lonely or isolated, small DIY tasks like putting up a shelf or maybe fitting a door handle. Knitting or sewing, teaching a skill such as a language or a musical instrument, sharing a hobby. Timebank Members make requests through the Time Banking Scheme, and members are put in touch with someone who can help.

Time Bank members log their hours for the time they volunteer and then they can use those hours to make their own requests. If members don't need or want any help themselves, they can donate some or all of their time credits to a community pot for use by those members who need support but cannot offer help themselves.

Joining a Time Bank is a great way to offer the skills and spare time you have to help others, and bring the community together. If you would like to, you can receive help and support in return. Everyone has something to offer.

What skills do I need?

Various - if you have time and skills to share with others please get in touch.
