Partnership with hOurworld, USA Time & Talents¬†timebanking software (TnT) is available in the UK and Timebanking¬†UK will now be offering it to all of our member time banks and¬†taking on the sole responsibility for rolling it out across the¬†country under a new and exciting agreement with hOurworld¬†Cooperative¬†(www.hOurworld.org), who created¬†this state of the art software . TnT is a powerful tool for both brokers and members.¬† It is¬†easy to use and members can post offers and requests, manage their¬†own pages and leave feedback.¬† There is a reporting feature¬†for easy data collection and most importantly, it will ease¬†administrative duties for ¬†brokers, allowing more time for¬†relationship building and networking. Timebanking UK are mindful of safeguarding issues and have ensured¬†that this software is flexible and can be customised so that Time¬†Brokers can oversee exchanges if preferred.

If you would like to start using Time and Talents contact firstname.lastname@example.org¬†for more information and links on demo pages, what support TBUK can¬†offer and how you can get started.¬† We will be using a¬†phased-in approach and will give you an estimated time of¬†activation depending upon the response received across the country.

Town Teams¬†and Timebanking UK have teamed up!¬†The Association of Town & City Management (ATCM) and¬†Timebanking UK are teaming up to help bring communities together in¬†town centres across England and make great local places. As part of ATCM’s support for Town Teams, funded by the Department¬†for Communities and Local Government, Timebanking UK will help¬†develop up to five brand new timebank locations in England.¬†Timebanking is a fantastic way for local people to connect with¬†each other and support their community by swapping skills and¬†services in exchange for others.
Chris Hurst, ATCM Town Team Programme Manager, said “we are¬†delighted to be working with Timebanking UK to provide another new¬†way of supporting town centres in England. This is a great¬†opportunity for Town Teams to get expert help in developing their¬†own local timebank and using local skills and enthusiasm to help make their local area a great place to live, work and relax.”
Sarah Bird, CEO of Timebanking UK is thrilled to be working with¬†Town Teams across England and hopes that by sharing best practice¬†and the timebanking concept, each area will be able to mobilise,¬†reward and inspire local people to get involved.
