Talk at The Peacock: Skills Exchange

An opportunity to find out about the Skills Exchange, an organisation in Nottingham which works to support the local community.

 

Helen Rigby and members of the Partnership Council Skills Exchange will be giving a talk about the Skills Exchange and Time Banking. The talk will explain what it is, what it does, and how people benefit from it.  You can ask questions at the end too.


From the Skills Exchange Weblog:

"Skills Exchange is a Time Bank. The principle behind Time Banking is very simple, for every hour that you help someone else you will receive one time credit, you can then go on to swap these time credits when you want something doing for you. One hour’s work equals one time credit no matter what skills are used. All skills have equal value.
It does what it says on the tin. It is a chance for people in the community to swap skills with each other."

    Sadly cannot make it, but for anyone who'd like to join my project where we fix things and teach how to fix for people (and that doesn't have to mean physical items), then get in touch.
