In January 2015, four neighbourhood Timebanks were launched in Brixham, Chelston, Paignton and Watcombe, Hele & Barton. Over the last few months these Timebanks have grown and local people have offered many kinds of support to others, whilst receiving the help that they need.

We are pleased to announce that we are soon launching another five neighbourhood Timebanks. These new Timebanks will be based in Blatchcombe, Ellacombe, Preston, St Marychurch, Babbacombe, Plainmoor and Maidencombe and in Torquay Town Centre, Torre and Upton!

Furthermore, we will also be launching a TCDT Timebank specifically for local groups, organisations and businesses. This Timebank will be slightly different to the neighbourhood Timebanks as it offers support in areas such as equipment hire, room hire, funding advice, website and social media support, start up planning and much more!

Currently, the Timebanks have over 130 members who have exchanged over 230 hours between them! With the launch of the new Timebanks coming shortly, we can only expect this exciting new project to continue to grow across the Bay!

Details of the launch to follow soon. In the meantime, if you are interested in joining your local neighbourhood Timebank – or if you are a group, organisation or local business who would like to find out more about the TCDT Timebank – please get in touch!
