Valuing time

07 May 2015

Residents of Rushey Green, South East London are helping each other and swapping their skills, thanks to the Rushey Green Time Bank and new funding from the Trust.

The Time Bank recognises that many people have skills and experience that go unrecognised and unrewarded. Time Banking allows them to use these skills and be rewarded for their contribution with payment in kind, and in the process gets people out and about meeting their neighbours and coming together as a community.

Find out more about how it works and the impact it’s having on the residents of Rushey Green in this video.

Rushey Green Time Bank was awarded £36,500 by People’s Health Trust using money raised by HealthWisdom through The Health Lottery. To find out more visit their website.
