Portobello Timebank is a sharing community on the East side of Edinburgh.

Members help each other and payment is the time it takes. The person that helps, is credited by the amount of time taken and can subsequently use that credit to ask another member to help them.


There is huge satisfaction in meeting members, completing exchanges, making new friends and feeling part of the community.

COVID-19 update
Timebank members have been actively involved in setting up several neighborhood self-support groups as we believe this is the most effective way of getting help to people who are self-isolating, and we continue to offer this assistance to anyone wanting to set up a group for their own street. We can also provide social support over the telephone. For either of these, please send details initially via our contact form

For shopping, we recommend you contact Porty Coronavirus Action
