Since that point it has witnessed extraordinary growth, being applied to many and varied settings across the public, private and community sectors.. And it is not just a UK phenonmenon.. The timebanking journey began in the USA, and has now spread to over forty countries in six different continents.. But the coming of age of this movement, timebanking still remains an approach that is far from fully formed.. Not a day goes by without timebanking being applied in a new setting, or across a new boundary.. No two timebanks of the 250 or so there are in the  ...   experience of this new way of doing business.. This area of the site will help you understand what timebanking is, why it is an important means of exchange, and what some of the key economic and social benefits can be..

  • Title: Why timebanking? | Timebanking UK
    Descriptive info: Why should anyone wish to introduce a timebank or use timebanking as a means of exchange? If it is just a mechanism for organising activity, what is so special about it?.. Co-production is the answer.. Timebanks are mechanisms for achieving coproduction.. The co-production principle asserts that there is more capacity in an economic system than that simply defined by the market.. For example, the market assigns a high value, through price, to resources that are scarce, and a low value to things that are commonly or universally available.. That means the market doesn’t adequately value certain activities until they become truly scarce: caring, learning, imparting values, sharing, socialising, raising children, being a good neighbour, helping others —all contributions that can be made by every human being.. Co-production is about elevating the status of this second, informal, economy, so that we utilise these abundant assets more effectively.. If we consider a public service example, by operating in the traditional manner interventions often fail to value the contribution that can be made by the individual who is in need themselves.. The bulk of money goes on  ...   taking a co-production approach we are saying that by mobilising the hidden people power and resource that exists in all of us, we can send a different signal: People can.. Co-production assumes that people can.. By enlisting clients as partners we can multiply government spending and unlock an abundance of people power.. We can create a multiplier effect.. So co-production is about drawing a bigger boundary around the economy and actually saying the universal assets that lie in the system are valuable too.. By utilising them and investing in them, our realm of what is possible suddenly becomes significantly broader.. Co-production is about investing in people’s ability to solve their own problems.. By valuing and utilising the abundant assets that exist in human beings, a multiplier effect can unleash social value and generate more from our money.. Timebanking is a means of exchange build for abundance for the assets that lie dormant in people and organisations.. By bringing these assets to life, and allowing people equitable access to them, we no longer need to talk about a resource crisis.. We can say that People Can!..

  • Title: Co-production and timebanking | Timebanking UK
    Descriptive info: If co-production is a lens that helps us vale the abundant assets that exist in people, timebanks are a mechanism for utilising them and creating a multiplier effect.. Timebanks elevate the status of people’s assets, whatever they wish to contribute, to a level of parity.. Every hour is worth the same the doctor s and the patient s.. So for example,timebank provides a form of liquidity to activities such as doing the shopping or picking a neighbour’s child up from school, formally recognising that this is valuable economic activity that can be harnessed to build better outcomes.. We can make use of the assets we all have through timebanking, as it is a distributive system designed to deal with abundance rather than scarcity.. In that sense, a successful timebank hard-wires co-production principles to provide value to that which might traditionally be overlooked.. We are using timebanking to think beyond and in addition to money, about what else we could give  ...   asset, and enshrining its value through the hour for an hour principle.. Redefining work.. Work must be redefined to include whatever it takes to raise healthy children, preserve families, make neighbourhoods safe and vibrant, care for the frail and vulnerable, redress injustice and make democracy work.. A timebank provides liquidity to activitythat informally contributes towards these things.. Reciprocity.. The impulse to give back is universal.. Wherever possible, we must replace one-way acts of largess in whatever form with two-way transactions.. “You need me” becomes “we need each other” in a timebank.. Social capital.. Humans require a social infrastructure as essential as roads, bridges and utility lines.. Social networks require ongoing investments of social capital generated by trust, reciprocity, and civic engagement.. A timebank creates a system that builds social capital – every action leaves a footprint.. Respect.. By respecting and recognising value in the contribution we can all make, we hard-wire a critical feedback loop into the way we work..

  • Title: What are the benefits? | Timebanking UK
    Descriptive info: When timebanking as a means of exchange can be applied in so many different settings, the benefits can be far and wide-reaching.. Broadly speaking, they can be distilled into three main categories, each of which has broad implications for social and economic wellbeing.. Economics more with less.. Timebanking makes use of the assets and resources that exist within a particular community or group that are traditionally overlooked in conventional economic transactions and services.. In this way, through co-production,.. timebanking applies a multiplier effect to enlarge the pool of resources available in any system.. This in itself can breed innovation, by helping us to think beyond our conventional assumptions about our ‘means’ and the limits of what is possible.. In a public service setting this means a greatly increased pool of resource and sphere of possibility, without having to raise additional finance.. But just as importantly, timebanking can help bring about culture change within an organisation.. Moving to a co-production lens reduces the burden many professionals feel in having to operate within systems that do not solicit the active support of the people they are trying to help.. Timebanks can herald a new relationship between providers and users of services, so that professionals do not become swamped by a tide of ever-rising need and demand on their resource, but instead see  ...   to spend time with someone else, timebank members gain equal access (an hour is the same to everybody) to resources that might typically be beyond their means given their economic position.. This allows people learn new skills or take advantage of training opportunities.. Timebanks are successful in attracting people who would not normally get involved in traditional volunteering.. Only 16 per cent of traditional volunteers have an income of under £10,000, whereas nearly four times as many timebank participants do (58%).. Nearly double the number of timebank participants are not in formal employment (72%) compared to traditional volunteers (40%).. (NEF, 2002.. The Time of Our Lives).. Strengthening community.. Timebanking builds social networks of people who give and receive support from each other, enabling people from different backgrounds, who may not otherwise meet, to come together and form connections and friendships.. Generating social capital in this way can be an important determinant of health, wellbeing and resilience, all of which can prevent needs arising.. Examples include ensuring older people receive nutritional food and are able to eat regularly, and providing a ‘circle of support’ for young people in keeping them out of trouble.. In addition, this is a highly effective community development tool, empowering individuals and groups to bring about change, make choices and take control of their own lives and neighbourhoods..

  • Title: Research | Timebanking UK
    Descriptive info: In the context of scarce resources and tighter budgets, increasingly policy makers and funders want to see the evidence base for time banking.. Whilst there is an abundance of anecdotal evidence and stories demonstrating beneficial outcomes for individuals, communities, public services and society, the research evidence can be hard to locate.. This page makes this process easier by organising current research evidence on timebanking into themed sections.. Simply click on your  ...   reports.. A general comment about the evidence: there is a recognised lack of robust evaluations of timebanking.. However, there is a growing interest in research including an established research network for academics, and the Economic and Social Research Council is currently funding three PhD students..
