Fair Shares - Gloucester Time Bank

Description

Fair Shares is a registered charity which runs Time Banks, providing people with access to the services and skills they need in day to day life, and enbabling them to help others, free of charge. You can 'deposit' time in the time bank by spending a few hours helping somebody or doing community work. Fair Shares participants can offer all sorts of help from gardening and housework to shopping, giving lifts and befriending. They are then able to withdraw time from the time bank when they need help themselves - you earn one Fair Share for each hour that you provide a service for another participant. You can then spend your Fair Shares when you need a service. This creates a community of support and values each person's time and skills equally.

Our approach involves more people than traditional volunteering programmes, and attracts participants who might not normally be involved in volunteering. The Prisoners and Families Project is also run from Gloucester Time Bank.
