What could I offer to my community?

Feeling a little lost about what value you have to your community? Want to be part of the timebank, but unsure what to offer or request? Take a look at these suggestions from the community.

Be a rubbish hero

You could offer to take out someone's waste or recycling on collection days.

It may seem like a little thing, but this kind offer might be just what someone else needs and doesn't want to ask for.

Temp

Be a super shopper

You could offer to collect a weekly shop for someone, or to pick up prescriptions.

When offering to help collect or deliver for someone, ensure you are aware that it is safe to do so. Check the government's current advice here.

Temp

Be a phone buddy

You could offer to ring someone for a conversation; both phone and video calls with a 'phone buddy' can prevent loneliness and isolation.

When chatting on the phone, please be mindful that people may feel desperate and vulnerable. They need a friendly voice and a helping hand to overcome a challenge they may be facing. It is up to you to listen carefully, be reassuring, and act as a friend.

Temp

Be a tutor

Offer to give online tutoring to young people or adults who require additional support. 

This doesn't have to be a formal arrangement, perhaps you could help with science coursework for an hour?

Temp

Be a garden gnome

Maybe you're a secret superhero when it comes to weeding? Perhaps you can help (or advise) to put up a shelf? You could offer to help other timebank members with gardening or DIY needs.

When offering to help someone, ensure you are aware that it is safe to do so. Check the government's current advice here.

Temp

Be a comedian

Maybe you're a knock-knock joker, a dry wit, or full of classic 'Dad jokes'. Your humour could be just what someone else needs to lift their mood.

Have you found a joke or video or meme that makes you smile? Why not share it around so that others can smile too? Why not offer to share your jokes or humour with someone in need of a laugh?

Temp

Be a gamer

Could you play chess with someone else via phone, email or video link?

Maybe you've got a passion for board games or other friendly competitive activities that you could challenge other timebankers to go head to head on.

Temp

Share your ideas

Offers on the timebank can be very simple, you may not have an elaborate talent that you could offer to teach or share with others, but we can guarantee that you'll have something useful to offer others in your community.

We're interested in hearing your ideas-what sort of 'offers' could people post?
