Paxton Green Time Bank

Overview

A time bank is a new and exciting way for people to come together to help others and help themselves at the same time. Participants ‘deposit’ their time in the bank by giving practical help and support to others and are able to ‘withdraw’ their time when they need something done themselves. Time banks measure and value all the different kinds of help and skills we can offer each other. In a time bank, everyone becomes both a giver and a receiver.

At Paxton Green time bank no job is too small and while you’re earning credits helping out, you’ll probably be making friends and learning something new yourself.  You can also benefit from a range of talents and skills currently available in the time bank such as:
