How To Join

Our members are involved in helping each other in many different ways - whether it's help with gardening, a simple DIY job, assisting at our Food Co-op, leafleting, escorting a disabled person to a health appointment, offering lifts, food growing tips, guitar tuition, cookery, office help or computer assistance, your imagination is the limit!

Volunteering with Time Bank Plus is an excellent way to develop your skills and confidence, to help you into employment or simply to become more involved in your local community. Everyone is welcome to join us, regardless of age, health or ability - we firmly believe that everyone has something to offer, please see our skills questionnaire for ideas.

All members are asked to fill in a simple joining form, either online or at our office. To ensure that we are able to offer a safe and reliable service we meet personally with all prospective members and we ask for 2 references from somebody who knows you.

Volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults are also CRB checked. Members of Time Bank Plus are also able to exchange skills and services with members of Bath LETS.

"I have really enjoyed joining in the gardening groups and meeting new people."

"It makes a big difference to my general well being, as I'm not well enough to work and it's difficult to find things to join and ways to interact with people, so I feel better in myself by volunteering."
