Portobello Timebank is committed to supporting and empowering local people in building a stronger community through the exchange of skills and time.  We want to enable everyone to experience the benefits timebanking membership offers and to ensure that it contributes to developing a community where everyone is respected and regarded as assets.


  • Everyone has something to offer and the right to feel useful

  • Everyone's time is valued equally

  • Reciprocity is key to building connections and rebuilding community

  • Being together means being stronger.  If we join together we can create a network of support, strength and trust.

  • Work needs to be redefined to include and value all that people are able to contribute in helping each other and their community.


"Never think what you have to offer is insignificant; there will always be someone in our neighbourhood who needs what you have to give."
