Our Mission

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.
