I love gardening! So I volunteer for the Oakley Timebank
Dave taught me how to use the computer!
Oakley Neighbourhood Project
The work of the neighbourhood project is strengthened by a committed and enthusiastic group of volunteers. Volunteering is also used as a way to build skills, gain experience, improve self-confidence and boost employability.
is a community scheme which encourages two way volunteering; people are rewarded for the help they give. Through time bank you can exchange your time and skills with others; every hour you give earns a credit which can be exchanged for services you might need. You choose what you want to do and how often you want to help.
The Oakley Time Bank:
is a new and exciting way to meet people, swap skills and be part of your community. If your garden is unruly or the walls need painting, the Time Bank can find someone to do your jobs in return for you helping someone else. That could be anything from shopping for an elderly neighbour or hosting a coffee morning. With the Time Bank, your hours come back to you, in kind.
