How to get Involved

We hope you have decided that Time Banks are a great idea and you want to get involved.

There are now five Time Banks in Edinburgh – West Edinburgh (based in Westerhailes), Leith, Portobello, North Edinburgh (based in Pilton) and Broomhouse.

Visit our Time Banks in Edinburgh page and select the area you live in to find out if there is a Time Bank near you. Then complete the form and we will get back to you with more details.

We hope to get back to people within seven days. We will contact you to arrange a time to meet up. We can tell you more about Time Banks, answer any questions and help you to complete the registration form. This tells us what kind of skills you can offer and what you might like other people to do for you.

We also ask you for the contact details of two referees who we can contact. One of these should be someone who knows you well personally (not a family member) and the other someone who knows you in a professional capacity. For example employer, doctor, volunteer manager.

Once we’ve checked out the references you can start exchanging jobs!

Don’t live in an area that already has a Time Bank? Don’t worry. Fill in the form and hopefully we can help start a new Time Bank in your area once there are enough people.
