What is Timebanking?
Time banks are a new and exciting way for people to come together to help others and help themselves at the same time by sharing their skills. Participants "deposit" their time in the bank by giving practical help and/or support to others and are able to "withdraw" their time when they need something done themselves. Everyone's time is equally valued. There are different models of timebanking including - person to person, person - agency and agency - agency. Timebanking has the potential to strengthen communities through reciprocity.
