It’s About Time | Sarah Bird
Timebanking UK CEO Sarah Bird was asked to do a TEDx Talk.
Published on 18 May 2017
Sarah Bird is the CEO of Timebanking UK (TBUK) and has over 12 years of experience within the timebanking field. She originally set up and ran a time bank, before becoming a consultant and project manager within TBUK. Sarah continues to develop partnerships and networks across the country with the vision of co-produced timebanking being available in every town and city in the UK.
Timebanking can transform healthcare, creating mutual support networks in communities by encouraging people to help one another using time â€“ not money â€“ as a currency. Timebanking reduces isolation and improves confidence. Sarah talks about some of the challenges involved in creating and supporting a network, including safeguarding procedures and software.
She firmly believes that timebanking brings a wealth of benefits to individuals and neighbourhoods. Sarah delivers talks, presentations and training days alongside the indispensable team of core staff, associate trainers and consultants who are part of Timebanking UK.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organised by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
