There are no barriers to accessing the Harrow Communities Click network as we know everyone has skills, knowledge and abilities to offer, which someone else could benefit from. Harrow Communities Click network is a way of putting these together and creating a better community using Timebanking as a tool. Harrow Communities Click can turn strangers into friends. As in all friendships, you must be ready to give and receive. Harrow Communities Click network will not work without this. Time banking is not volunteering or charity. It is about every member offering their skills, abilities and knowledge to help others. In return you get help to do tasks that you need help with, to a level that you can reasonably expect from an average local person. Everyone’s time is valued equally and will always be an hour for an hour.
It is a way for people to help others in their community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of time you give helping someone, you receive one time credit.
Harrow Communities Click will also be running fun, free activities in partnership with the local community.
What can you do with your time credits?
You can ‘spend’ your time credits when you need help from someone else. You can give them to another person who needs some help. You can save them.
Who can join Harrow Communities Click?
Anyone over 18 years of age can join Harrow Communities Click. Ability, lack of finance or limited mobility are not barriers to participating.
Harrow Communities Click is a way to
· Learn new skill, like using a computer
· Get help with things that you can’t do – housework, weekly shop, fixing a leaking tap, wash your car, weeding, walk your dog etc.
· Make new friends
· Organise your own events, maybe a knitting or language club
· Share knowledge with each other
