Fair Shares Community Time Banks
Fair Shares was set up in January 1998 to create the UK’s first time bank and to explore ways of using time to rebuild communities.
We now run time banks based in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Newent, Stroud and Tewkesbury. We also work with three prisons in the county, run a county wide time bank supporting families and disabled childrenand set up an organisational time bank so that community groups in the area can share resources and expertise.
All of our time banks connect people, help them share time and strengthen communities. Last year the time banks had around 1500 people in a mutual network of support, which created 100,000 hours of community support.
Fair Shares Community Time Banks is a Registered Charity, number 1110418.
