Set up in the year 2000, the Gloucester Time Bank is one of the largest and most dynamic time banks in England. We have participants from all over the city, from all walks of life, and it’s this great mix of people that makes our time bank what it is.

We have over 350 participants and over 70 organisations in the time bank. The work we do varies from small things like helping a neighbour change a light bulb, to much larger projects like working with St James City Farm in our allotment.

We like to think there’s something for everyone – everyone has something to offer and anyone can get involved.

If you want to find out more you can come join us on Mondays at our weekly community lunch at Chequers Bridge Community Centre. Food is normally ready about 1.30pm, but cooking and socialising starts at 11am.
