Timebanking UK is pleased to host another of our popular Introduction to Timebanking sessions this Thursday at 1pm.
You’ll hear about why timebanking is an effective way of making people feel happier, healthier and more connected. It’s a way for people to do what they want to do at a time that’s convenient for them â€“ and to ask for a little help when they need it.
After six months, members of a representative time bank gave the following feedback…
â€¢ 85% said they were meeting more people
â€¢ 80% felt more part of the community
â€¢ 74% had made new friends
â€¢ 74% experienced a lift in mood or reduced depression
â€¢ 69% felt they could ask for or receive more help
â€¢ 66% experienced reduced loneliness
â€¢ 60% said their quality of life, health and wellbeing had improved
If you’d like to see how timebanking works, join us on Thursday!
and you’ll be sent a confirmation email.
We are pleased to invite you to our Time to Connect Gatherings in January 2020 following the 3 year project with NDTi, supported by the Big Lottery. It would be great if you could make it!
Over the last 2 and a half years, Time to Connect has explored how to enable people with learning disabilities and older people living in care settings, to be part of their communities. Working with providers, this ground-breaking project has supported people to connect, make friendships and contribute to the communities and neighbourhoods around them, improving their quality of life.
Timebanking UK, in partnership with NDTi a number of time banks and support provider organisations have developed staff skills, created changes and ultimately, helped more people be active and connected. The timebanking concept has provided a structure of time exchange encouraging involvement and enabling people to give as well as receive support.
