The Time Of Our Lives: Using time banking for neighbourhood renewal and community capacity building



by Gill Seyfang, Karen Smith, New Economics Foundation, 2002
Language : English

This report written by Gill Seyfang and Karen Smith is the culmination of two years research on time banks around the UK. Time banks are succeeding in re-building trust and social capital, and are attracting into volunteering the very people who normally take part least – including claimants, disabled people, those with a long term illness and non-white British ethnic groups. The executive summary can be downloaded here, or the full report can purchased from the publisher with money and some time credits. Of course!
