Time banking scheme gets quality mark

Our Time, Richmond Fellowship’s time banking scheme in Liverpool, has been awarded a national quality mark by Timebanking UK.

The quality mark demonstrates our service is meeting Timebanking UK’s recommended best practices and has been awarded to us for the next three years.

Time banking is an exchange and sharing of skills and the only currency is time. The time bank is made up of members who receive one credit for every hour they give to the bank. The members earn their credits by providing services to members and spend their credits by buying services from other members.

Time banking promotes social inclusion and empowers individuals by making the members feel valued as they are able to share their skills with others and learn new skills themselves. Find out more about our service.
