Sawston Timebank

What is the Timebank?

It is a way for people to help others in their community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of time you give helping someone, you receive one-time credit in your personal Timebank account.  The Timebank will also be running fun, free activities in partnership with the local community.

What can you do with your time credits?

You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. You can give them to another person who needs some help. Or you can save them to use.

Who can join the Timebank?

Anyone can join. Age, ability, lack of finance or limited mobility are not barriers to participating in the Timebank.  Look inside for the ways in which you can get involved.

  • For one hour you spend helping someone you will earn – 1 time credit
  • Everyone’s time is valued equally
  • You give an hour and you get an hour back
  • You may have needs but feel you can offer nothing back
  • Get in touch. We can still help you
  • Your time credits will be banked on a computer for you to spend when you need them
  • You don’t have to earn time credits before you spend them
  • You can ask for help from day one
  • You can donate some of your time credits to others who might need some extra help
