Join the timebank to offer or exchange help in the community
Timebanking lets members offer their time to anyone in their 'community' (street, village, town or county). Once a task is completed, members are rewarded with time credits (1hr = 1credit). Members can then spend their earned credits requesting help from others or they can donate them to others who may value them more.
Users are required to go through a reference checking process before they can join the online timebank and start exchanging offers and requests. Simply sign in and go to your dashboard to fill in the timebank joining form.
