Introduction to the Peter Bedford Time Bank!

The Peter Bedford Time Bank is a way for everyone involved in Peter Bedford to share their skills and talents with each other.

What is it?

A Time Bank is a scheme where you can exchange skills and time for credits, which you can spend on receiving skills and time to help you. For example, if you love photography you can organise a photography workshop and you would get time credits. You can then use these credits to join cooking lessons given by someone who loves cooking. It will be led by tenants and participants – so please contribute to make it work for you!

The time bank will be an excellent way of making friends, helping each other, and getting help for things you find difficult. It will help us to make new connections and combat isolation and loneliness in a supported environment.

What could I do?

You can contribute to the time bank in many different ways, according to how you can help, and what you need help with.
