Time Bank Taranaki

A Timebank is an initiative that enables citizens / neighbours and groups to connect with each other and use their skills and gifts to help one another out. Through the process of helping another, one accumulates ‘time credits’ which are logged in an online time account. One can ‘purchase’ help from other members by using their time credits.

We would love to invite any and all interested people to a public meeting on the Timebank

  • When: 7.30pm – 8.30pm, Wed April 11
  • Where: Peace Hall, Vivian Street (across the road from Saint Mary’s Cathedral)
