Time Union is a time bank run by Coventry City Council which aims to help people use their time to build their sense of self through relating to others, connect to Coventry as a community, and enable socially positive changes to come from individual acts of sharing.
A time bank is a system of mutual exchange. Members share their time, assets, and skills on an hour to hour basis – share an hour with one member, and get an hour back from another. Current members exchange language lessons, fitness, DIY, career and life coaching, filmmaking lessons, crafts, Reiki, cinema trips, and more. The possibilities are endless! You don’t have to be an expert to share something although some are, it can be a hobby skill at which you are able, or wish to develop.
Time Union is free (it just costs time!) and open to all 18+ with a connection to Coventry. It is based upon an ethos of equality, reciprocity, and asset recognition.
