Time4Southwark: Growing Timebanking in Southwark

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:47:52 BST by broker, 2968 views

Time4Southwark is our three year project to increase timebanking opportunities in Southwark by supporting the growth of timebanking hubs.   Our work is informed and strengthened by a network of time banks and organisations and actively involved or interested in adopting a timebanking approach in their existing work. 

The core of our work aims to raise awareness of timebanking and its asset-based approach amongst health and social care professionals in the borough, working closely with Southwark Children’s and Adults Services staff. 

Our offer:  

We have been generously funded by Southwark Innovation Fund to support the growth of timebanking.  If you are a voluntary organisation or working with local communities and would like further information on how you might go about adopting or integrating timebanking into your existing work, get in touch.  Or contact us if you just want to know more about timebanking in general. We provide information, support and training and should you choose to use timebanking, we offer free membership to a database (used by time banks across the world) that facilitates the recording and tracking of skills exchanges. 

Thinking of timebanking?

BUILDING COMMUNITIES IN LAMBETH

Time4Lambeth is an exciting initiative that is set up by Paxton Green Time Bank. We want to create... a happier, healthier, more sufficient Lambeth community. We do this by supporting local people and organisations to build relationships so they can work together to achieve what they need.  

We aim to facilitate the growth of new timebanking hubs in Lambeth. We aim to do this by supporting the development of timebanking hubs (e.g. cafes, schools, churches, community centres etc) where assets are shared in the local community.

 

GET INVOLVED!

There are many opportunities to get involved or hear about our work. Become a timebanking hub, sharing assets, people skills, and your time to build a timebanking Lambeth.

Paxton Green Group Practice

Paxton Green Group Practice

Paxton Green Group Practice (PGGP) is the largest single site general practice in Lambeth and Southwark, based at Paxton Green Health Centre in the Dulwich/ West Norwood area. The practice has nearly 20,000 registered patients who are based in an area marked by extreme differences in health, wealth and housing. The practice provides a very wide range of services through an extensive primary health care team. The practice has a long held commitment to supporting mental health and well being initiatives, and the Time Bank project fitted well with its involvement in community education and development. PGGP has an active patient participation group and an enthusiastic patient with diabetes group.
 
PGGP is delighted to be so closely associated and working with the Paxton Green Time Bank (PGTB). The benefits of developing personal networks and reducing social isolation has had dramatic effects on some of the people involved in the PGTB as shown by their comments and statements made later in this report. The energy and enthusiasm of many PGTB members and the team is inspiring. PGTB are in the process of appointing a researcher to help document the stories and if possible measure the benefits to members well being.
The challenges are many: securing future funding, expanding the project and membership, and measuring the benefits, but these can only be helped by this report on the PGTB project initial work and activities.
