Bridge2Rocks Timebank operates under Sumner Bays Union Trust, a registered charitable Trust facilitating a range of community development initiatives that enhance social wellbeing.
TimeBanking is a community building tool weaving community to assist with the creation of well-being and connection. TimeBanking is a way of trading skills in a community. It uses time rather than money as the measurement tool. Everyone’s time is equal. Members share their skills and are given time credits for the work they do. They can use these credits to obtain the services they need. QUOTE: We have what we need if we use what we have; Dr Edgar. S. Cahn, Founder of TimeBanking.
