Timebanking at the National Level

Timebanking across New Zealand took on new momentum in November when 15 Timebanks from across the country held a national hui. Stuart McKay attended on behalf of the Wairarapa Timebank.

“It was great to hear what others were doing, and benefit from their experience,” he said. “Timebanking brings out those in a community who like to get involved.  A Wairarapa Timebank has the potential to be a great resource to Wairarapa organisations who work closely with volunteers.”

Topics covered included staging events for people to get involved in community activities, working with community organisations and fostering diverse memberships of community orientated people.  If you’re interested in finding out more about timebanking at the national level you can visit the Timebanking Aotearoa website at
