Time Swap

Time Swap

In a Time Swap, members 'deposit' their time in the bank by giving help and support to other members and then are able to 'withdraw' their time when they need something done themselves or alternatively they can donate their time to other members in the Time Swap scheme. Everybody's time is worth the same and for every hour an individual gives helping someone, they are entitled to one hour's credit in return. All this activity is recorded by a Time Broker who matches up the right task to the right person and also issues Time Swap statements so that members can keep a record of how
many hours they have given and received.
Members will have an enormous range of skills and services that they can offer to their fellow members. Requests for help and support are received at the office and Time Swap members are contacted to enable time to be exchanged. Time Swap members will be able to offer assistance in many ways including: simple DIY; small Gardening tasks; Companionship; Computer Skills; Decorating; Ironing; Shopping; Errands; Form Filling; Knitting/Sewing/Crochet/Mending; Car Washing; Dog Walking to name but a few.
The time Swap will be as good as its members want it to be. The Time Swap Initiative will be free to join and all new members will receive an hour of time to be deposited into
their account. Being a member of the Time Swap does not affect your tax position in any way or any entitlement to state benefits. There is no 'catch' - you just have to be prepared to both receive and give time by helping others and allowing other people to help you!
If you think you would like to join or would like to find out more, why not give us a ring on 01629 532049
