The Guildford Time Bank is about local people helping and supporting each other in all kinds of different ways – through practical help, skills sharing, personal support or tutoring. Anyone can join, as everyone has something to offer and there is no regular commitment – you can offer as little as an hour! It could be helping someone to do their gardening, shopping or DIY or maybe you need help with things like these yourself?
Give an hour, get one back – members ‘deposit’ their time in the Time Bank by giving practical help and support to others, and are able to ‘withdraw’ their time when they need help for something themselves.
An example of an exchange is:
1. You volunteer one hour of your time to teach someone to bake a cake
2. This earns you one time credit.
3. You spend this credit on someone helping you in your garden for an hour.
References are taken for all new joiners to ensure Time Bank members peace of mind.
