We aim to promote Community Involvement and to rebuild a sense of Commmunity spirit in Castlemilk, a large housing scheme in the outskirts of Glasgow. This is done by helping people to exchange skills, services and support. One hour of your time will give you an hour of someone else's time.
In November 2001 the Castlemilk Timebank was launched and we have grown from strength to strength now having 300 members (not all exchanging at once).
There are a staff of three, a full time co-ordinator and two part time admin assistants
The skills exchanged are the softer skills which we all have such as the ironing, shopping, basic DIY.
The strangest request was for someone to have their mattress turned.
