Time Swap – Swap time not money!

Time Swap is an initiative that encourages local communities to help each other by sharing time and talents. As a Time Swap member you can earn ‘time’ by doing things in your community that you enjoy, or are good at, to help other people. You can then spend that time on getting help from other people with something that you find difficult or someone in your community could teach you a new skill.  Click here for more information
