This will be the first Timebank of it’s kind on the Isle of Wight, although there are Timebanks meeting local needs all over the world.  The Time Bank in its basic form rewards local groups and individuals for working with each other; it blurs the boundaries and can bring people communities closer together.  Everyone’s time is worth the same irrespective of skill and experience and 1 Time Credit = 1 Hour of time.  It enables opportunities and needs to be matched, making the best use of local resources.

If you feel like meeting new people, making the most of your time and doing something positive in your community, or are already doing any of these things, then Timebanking is for you.  Please join us and find out more on 18TH June see us at one of our other sessions.
