Timebanking UK and Made Open form strategic partnership.

We’re delighted to announce a strategic partnership with the UK's most respected timebanking organisation - Timebanking UK.

Timebanking is a time-based currency which facilitates the exchange of skills and experience within a community. Sometimes perceived as the domain of small-scale community initiatives, both Timebanking UK and Made Open are witnessing a surge of interest from large-scale timebanking programmes spanning both place-based and purpose-based communities.

The aim of this partnership is to combine the technical capability of our platform with the international reputation of Timebanking UK as leaders in their field. As Robert explains:

We’ve already seen with our first two timebanking platforms - Torbay Together and Hexitime - how timebanking can be a relevant proposition to both community and professional networks. I think the reason is quite simple - at the heart of timebanking is people adding more and more value to a community or system simply by sharing their skills with one another without any real money changing hands. What’s not to like?

Timebanking UK provides advice, training and resources for timebanks to operate safely and fairly, following best practice and in a way that creates networks of mutual support. Speaking about this partnership, Sarah Bird, CEO of TBUK, says:

Partnering with Made Open brings a wealth of new tech options to existing and new time banks. We have always recognised that each time bank has a unique way of working and are increasingly diversifying in their operations and activities. Combining the expertise and professionalism of both our organisations will enable the timebanking movement to continue to grow across our nation and beyond.

Sarah Bird, CEO, Timebanking UK

Having met on several occasions, both organisations quickly recognised the enormous potential they have as collaborators and so began a conversation about ways to build on each other's strengths. The aim of the partnership is to further support our combined client base and respond to immediate market needs. We envisage that this partnership will help to grow the global timebanking movement.
