The Department of Work and Pensions have released a statement and notification to all job centres across the UK about the benefits of timebanking. Job centre staff are being given the basic information about how timebanking works and how to locate their nearest time bank by searching on Timebanking UK (TBUK) website www.timebanking.org So, if time banks wish to be found by Job Centres or the DWP, please register with Timebanking UK to be included on âFind Your Nearestâ. Call TBUK on 01453 750952 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sarah Bird, CEO is continuing discussions with regional departments of DWP and will update all members of TBUK accordingly. Should any job centres want to know more or explore a closer working relationship with their local time bank, please contact Timebanking UK in the first instance.
