Training

Timebanking UK has over fifteen years of experience of working with time banks, from inception through to evaluation. During this period, our understanding of timebanking as a key mechanism for organising the co-production of public services has grown thanks to the great diversity in our members of over 300 time banks. We bring access to the learning from these sites, many of which are co-production pioneers. Likewise, with over 25,000 users of our time banks we have access to the insight and understanding of service users who have been enlisted as partners in co-produced delivery.
