Timebank uses time instead of money as a currency. Everyone has talents and abilities to share: timebanking is a great way for people to benefit and learn from one another where all skills are valued equally. Did you know the Miramar & Maupuia Community Centre is a timebank member? Hire our our space in exchange for time credits! Or if you have time to offer, come and help out and we will give you time credits for your mahi!

Earning time credits
Timebanking is simple. One hour of work earns one time credit. It doesn’t matter what skills are exchanged. Everyone’s time is valued equally. Your timebank account keeps track of your time credits that you can exchange for services offered by other members.

We all benefit
Timebanking benefits us all. For example, members have helped each other get to the supermarket, fix bikes, learn languages and get job advice. Others have shared their sewing, music, cooking and photography skills. The possibilities are endless. You can choose what you’d like to offer.

Who’s it for?
Anyone can join the Wellington Timebank. Our current members range from primary school children to rest home residents, and every age in-between. Everyone has something to offer.
