Timebanking UK is keen to help sustain timebanks by helping to organise regional network meetings across the UK. See below for more information why you might want to join a regional network!

Meeting up as a network is proven to help sustain timebanking. It’s an opportunity to meet other brokers, share ideas & best practice, attend workshops & training, discuss issues and realise you are not alone! Check out the regional meetings folder in TBUK MEMBERS AREA for dates of meeting for notes from regional meetings, presentations and workshops.

See quotes from recent regional meetings:


South West

“I thought the regional meeting went really well – the Plymouth group were quite inspired and they wanted more meetings like that in the future”

“A good day agreed”


North West

“That was a really good meeting, one of the best I’ve been to!”


South East

“I really enjoyed meeting other timebank workers – you get a different perspective on your work when you see others who are doing it. “

“It is good to see how others are using Timebanking as a means to support community development, and I felt our timebanks had a lot in common in this respect”


East

“I thought that was a good meeting a good turn out and the cup cakes were amazing!


West Midlands

“We really need this it’s been a long time since we did anything like this.”


London –“I am always keen to meet other timebanking folk although I obviously see Timebank members everyday it can feel lonely on my own”

As we embark on a sunny summer period Timebanking UK want to wish all member time banks a peaceful and enjoyable holiday season no matter what you may be doing. It is the time for bringing the time bank members together at BBQ’s, picnics and walks to strengthen those social networks too! Sarah Bird, CEO Timebanking UK Kaaren Morris, our new Regional Networks Project Manager has extensive timebanking experience and is already a valuable asset to TBUK. She is establishing new regional networks and also meeting with existing networks to see how we can help support our members and enhance the service already offered. We would love the regions to be more connected and we know you would too. By tailoring training and events to our members and by our members we are strengthening the networks and working in collaboration. Timebanking will be stronger and more resilient than ever before. Already there are dates in the diary for the South West, Midlands and North West – please check the members area for future regional meeting dates. “Thank you to everyone who replied with interest to host a regional meeting. I’ve been in touch with some of you already to plan meetings, and I’m looking forward to working together with all our members to plan a schedule of dates throughout the year.’’ To make contact with Kaaren, email her on kaaren@timebanking.org Andreas Wiede is currently working on IT, websites and design work for Timebanking UK and our members. He is updating our website and involved in numerous projects that we are implementing. Andi is also the broker of the Fair Shares South Cotswolds Time Bank. We would love to see your photos, videos and newsletters to share with other time banks around the country so please send them to andreas@timebanking.org to showcase the fantastic work the time banks are doing.
Sarah Bird met with a group of international like-minded people in France who came together to share ideas, suggestions and challenges around their countries using timebanking and community currencies. Those in attendance were from UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Tunisia and Brazil. One of the opening comments was that “The world has a social and economic crisis so we need to change behaviour to build a better world……if you want to plough straight, tie your plough to a star.” Read more here
Introduction to Timebanking This 3 hour session will cover key messages on timebanking, things to consider when starting one within your community/organisation and an opportunity to view our timebanking specific software. FREE for community/voluntary groups, £50 statutory agencies. To book, email: kaaren@timebanking.org Time and Talents Webinar Dates We now have 27 Timebanks using Time and Talents with several more due to start in the very near future. I will also be adding more training dates to the current ones. The new dates are as follows: If you would like to join one of these webinars, please email Ian Toplis at ian@timebanks.co.uk TBUK are currently getting a new forum underway as a place for BROKERS who are running time banks that are members of TBUK. This will be a confidential space for you to ask advice, ideas or share concerns. Everyone can share documents, photos or films to benefit other time banks across the country. Find out more about how it works here. More success for time banks Time 4 U, Preston & South Ribble and Lee Fair Share, London in achieving the Timebanking Quality Mark. The Trustees of Timebanking UK felt that these were excellent examples of good practice where time banks are being run and developed in accordance with our policies and procedures.
