ABOUT DERBYSHIRE TIME SWAP
Time Swapping (or Time Banking) is a fantastic initiative which allows members of the community to ‘swap’ their time to help somebody else. This support can range from assistance with gardening, to teaching I.T skills, or giving cookery lessons - the sky is the limit!
In return for this, a member of the community earns back time which they can spend doing something they want to - like learning a new skill or receiving help from another member. Members can even donate time they have accrued to other members if they wish. Time is the only currency used.
Needless to say, Time Banking presents tremendous benefits across the entire community.
HOW OUR TIME SWAP WORKS
To make sure that all members and swaps are safely managed, we will support you through an induction, where you will be provided with a Member Handbook.
We will also show you our online system where swaps can be arranged – TOL2

"It is such an inspiring and uplifting experience being in a group of people who are happy to assist each other. Such a sense of being part of a supportive community. As someone who now lives alone, that is very precious."
