In the context of scarce resources and tighter budgets, increasingly policy makers and funders want to see the evidence base for time banking.  Whilst there is an abundance of anecdotal evidence and stories demonstrating  beneficial outcomes for individuals, communities, public services  and society,  the research evidence can be hard to locate.

This page makes this process easier by organising current research evidence on timebanking into themed sections. Simply click on your area of interest for more information and links to summaries and copies of research reports.
