These simple steps take you through how to get involved in time banking in your area, what you can offer and what you can get in return.
You may have a clear idea of the skills you can offer, others might be unsure how they can get involved. Our team of experienced time brokers will meet you to help uncover your skills. We believe everyone has something to offer.
The central point of contact for everyone is the time bank - when a member needs our help; it’s then our job to match up the right person. You just contact us and we will make the connection. Your safety is important which is why we meet everyone in person.
By giving your time, you’re also building up time! Every hour you give earns you one time credit to use how you choose. You can access the skills of your community for example get help with DIY, learn new skills; the list is endless!
Beside the clear benefits of collecting and using time credits, donating your time has many other advantages. Being socially connected with your community, sharing your valuable skills and helping others are to name just a few.
Contact us and we’ll arrange to meet you to discuss your skills and suggest ways you can get involved. We are a friendly bunch so feel free to call and introduce yourself.
Anyone can become a Fair Shares member and we have over 1500 members of different ages and backgrounds. All you need to get involved is to want to get involved!
It’s free to join and be a member whether you start out with something to offer or something you need help with. There is no pressure to commit lots of time; you can go at your own pace.
