Timebanking is informal reciprocal volunteering, fitting around people’s lifestyles where participant’s only offer what they want to offer when they want to do it. The only currency is time and for every hour of help someone gives they receive an hour in return to ask for something they want or need, from any other Timebank participant.

Key elements of the role include:
