Rushey Green Time Bank

time bank scheme in catford for community and support

What does it do?

Our vision is to achieve a cohesive community in the Rushey Green area, where neighbours know neighbours and can rely on each other for help and support. Where people of different ages, cultures, backgrounds and abilities interact with each other on an equal footing and with mutual respect and understanding.
Time Banking is a community development tool and works by facilitating the exchange of skills and experience within a community. It aims to build the 'core economy' of family and community by valuing and rewarding the work done
in it. Time Banking values everyone's time as equal, 1 hour equals 1 hour, or 1 credit. For every hour you spend helping someone in your community you are entitled to an hour of help in return. All manner of skills are recognised from walking with someone to baking a cake.

Who it is for?

To empower the residents of Catford (including but not exclusively the patients of the Rushey Green Group Practice) to improve their own health and sense of well-being, and thus improve the health of the Catford community as a whole.
