What is Time Bank?

Timebanking is a kind of money. Give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit.For one person to earn a time credit, however, someone else has to agree to give it. Timebanking happens when a network or circle of members have agreed that they will give and receive credits for services that other members provide. Those networks are called “timebanks.”

Edgar Cahn (the founder of modern timebanking).

Our Mission

Timebanking for PAWE exists to share knowledge and skills, training and education to enable local community and organisations to establish and manage time banks for the elderly activities. We promote our belief that time banks build capacity within communities, and we recognise all PAWE activities with communities by using time, not money, as a currency. Specifically, the app will:

Support time banks by giving them the resources, tools and information they need to thrive

Work with organisations and commissioners with the aim of engaging local people to take part in timebanking

Influence policymakers and local and central government to promote the advantages of timebanking Video Tuts

Benefit of Pawe Timebank

Timebanking builds networks of people who give and receive support, enabling the PAWE community from different backgrounds who may not otherwise meet to form meaningful connections and friendships. Generating social capital in this way can enhance health, wellbeing and resilience, all of which can prevent additional needs arising, saving precious resources as well as contributing to a foundation of co-production that transcends our standard economic dealings.

Our Values - PAWE


The real wealth of our society is its people. We believe that every person is valuable and has something to offer other people in the community.


Time banks are helping to redefine “activities” to include raising healthy children, preserving families, making neighbourhoods safe and vibrant, caring for the frail and vulnerable, and tackling injustice.


We believe the impulse to give something back is universal. Timebanking enables people to be givers as well as takers. At a time bank, “you need me” becomes “we need each other”.


Timebanking builds mutual social and practical support networks in the community environment strengthening social capital and encouraging collaboration between community organisations and public services.
