Welcome to Stratford Time Bank!

First set up in 2012 by the Gloucester-based time bank Fair Shares, Stratford Time Bank is now run by a recently established voluntary organisation, based in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

And we are about to move into a new phase with the employment of a time broker and community development worker, thanks to funding from Orbit Heart of England housing association. Click here for more details.

What is a time bank?

Time banks reward people for the ordinary, neighbourly help they give to those around them. For every hour that a person gives to helping someone, or doing community work, they earn one ‘time credit’ which can then be spent receiving an hour’s help in return. One hour’s help given equals one hour’s help received, no matter what the task. Everyone’s time is valued equally and everyone can give to and benefit from the scheme.
