Time Banks Vision
A world in which people can receive all that they need for their own well being by contributing what they can to building community and working for social justice.
Time Banks Values
People are assets
The real wealth of any society is its people. Every individual has something of value to contribute to the well being of their local community, be it their experience, their support, their empathy, their contacts , their skills or their time.
Redefining Work Activities such as bringing up children, caring for people who are marginalised, keeping communities safe , fighting social injustice have to be rewarded and counted as real work.
We need each other. Giving and receiving are the basic building blocks of positive social relationships and healthy communities.
Building social networks
Belonging to a mutually supportive and secure social network brings more meaning to our lives and new opportunities to rebuild our trust in one another.
