Timebanking is a program which allows the voluntary exchange of services between members, operating on the basis of hour for hour. As well as connecting with your community through the joy of giving and receiving, Timebanking is a way to share your knowledge and passion about a project, organisation, recreation or business.
Timebanking allows individuals to match their skills and desire to participate in the community with specific community needs. It promotes active participation in community life and helps address the social isolation that some people experience.
Give an hour, receive an hour of – dog walking, ironing, community gardening, driving, hospital visits, umpiring, language tuition, painting, pool cleaning….. the possibilities are endless.
To participate in the Timebanking community, log on to the Timebanking website at www.timebanking.com.au, create an account and agree to assist other members of the community who have put up request for assistance.
