Welcome to Wellington's Timebank!

Time is our currency. Our members swap skills and knowledge for credits. We trade these credits for services in our community.

Our Timebank is a great place to meet people and get help with things you can’t do. You can also learn new skills and share your talents with people.

Everyone’s time is valued equally, regardless of what skills are exchanged.

My Many and Varied Trades

I have been a member of the Wellington Timebank for over two years, but only fully active for the last twelve months. I am totally into the concept of Timebanking, and have had many interesting trades. I once caught a bus from the city to Kilbirnie to collect some biscuits that were baked by a Timebank member. These biscuits were so good that I ate most of them on my way home.

I have volunteered in the kitchen at a community dinner, (attracted by the offer of a free dinner), have helped a member write his best man’s wedding speech, chainsawed up some firewood for a guy on his steep section, helped a lady update her CV, and enjoyed wholesome baking from two other Timebank members.


I enjoyed a comprehensive consultation on nutrition from Marion Leighton, and still enjoy her muesli on a daily basis. I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and posted a request on the Wellington Timebank website. Timebanker Brian got back to me and he agreed to lend me his guitar for one time credit a week. I am amazed at the variety of skills offered in our Timebanking community, and check the site most days for new requests and offers.


I have been volunteering at the Timebank for ten months assisting with administration and writing tasks. I love my ‘Timebank Tuesdays’, and enjoy meeting the people behind the names. I am well supported in the office by Chris and Eryn and Renee downstairs.
