What is Timebanking...

Timebanking enables members of a community to help each other by doing small jobs, favours or tasks.Timebanking works on the principle that everyone has some talent, skill, hobby or interest that would be useful to another person. For every hour you give, you will receive an hour’s credit that you can then redeem when you need something in return.

Timebanking can also lead to small social groups forming like the Supper Club – sampling different eateries around town or Creative Writing group covering all aspects of literature. Once you become a member, simply Log into hOurworld and press Menu Bar Option ‘Group’ to join any of available groups.
