How West Edinburgh Time Bank works
When you help someone in the time bank, you earn a “time credit” that you can use when you need a bit of help yourself. People help each other in all sorts of ways: gardening, shopping, cooking, computing, visiting, crafts, filling in forms, ironing, admin tasks, decorating. Everyone’s time is valued equally: 1 hour= 1 credit.
The great thing about the Time Bank is that everyone has something to offer. When new people start they are often surprised by how many skills they have.
We also have regular trips and get togethers so that everyone gets to meet each other.
