Give and Take Time aims to build on existing community spirit, widen community capacity and build community resilience within Northill Parish. We hope to engage with and bring together as many people as possible to reduce isolation, provide support, lend a helping hand and have fun.“We are delighted to have received national recognition for the time and effort taken to ensure the quality of our time bank. Thanks to all the members and directors who have made this possible and thanks to Timebanking UK together with Voluntary and Community Action, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire for all their help and support along the way. Special thanks to Sarah, Ian and Nicki whose infinite patience with all our queries is a lifeline we could not do without. Last but not least thanks to the timebanking community as a whole who have shared their expertise, making the whole setting up process so much easier and safer”
Stephanie Bennett, Director, Give & Take Time
Bringing communities together.
An exciting way for people to come together in their communities and organisations to share talents and resources in a mutually beneficial way, without the need for money.
Funded by Putting You First, a partnership between Dumfries and Galloway Council, NHS Dumfries & Galloway and Third and Independent Sectors; working together to provide better health, support and care services for older people.“Our time bank members are so happy with this outcome. Annandale and Eskdale Timebanks has 140 active members and is still growing weekly. We believe everyone is able to contribute no matter what age and skill and anything is possible.”
