Welcome to Broughty Ferry Timebank, Broughty Ferry's community-owned Timebank. Join today to become involved in volunteering in your local area. As a member of the Timebank you can get active doing jobs, tasks and favours to help other members at mutually suitable times. You can then request help in return. And the great thing is that members give their time for free.
Broughty Ferry Timebank is open to individuals and organisations.
What is Timebanking?
Timebanking is an informal way of volunteering
which brings people together to help each other
out by doing small jobs, favours and tasks, etc.
To date - 133 registered members and nearly 15000 hours of volunteering in the community
Catering, DIY, IT support, CV help, Lifts to appointments, Gardening, Shopping, Walking Group, Book Club, Dog walking, Companionship, etc.
How does it work?
Timebanking works on the principle that everyone has some talent, skill, hobby or interest that would be useful to another person. For every hour you give, you will receive an hour's credit and then you can claim that time back from a fellow member when you need something in return! And remember that you can give as little or as much time as you can.
All the activities are agreed between the Timebank Coordinator and the members who are participating in the task, job, hobby, etc. Members give their time for free.
The Timebank Coordinator is always there for the initial meeting to make the introductions and to confirm that the activity taking place is the one which has been requested.
Broughty Ferry Timebank is open to individuals and organisations in Broughty Ferry.
