WHAT IS TIME VILLAGE

Time Village is the community where people share their skills and their time to help each-other, support charities, and meet new and old friends and neighbours.
You can offer your skills by posting help offers, or you by organising a workshop.
When you post a help offer, you merely make a specific skill available for other Time Villagers to request. When you organise a workshop, you are offering to teach, or help a small group of Villagers with a specific skill.
If you need help with something, you can post a help request.

Want to share a skill?

  1. Post a help offer (click on the plus sign), or find (magnifying glass) a relevant skill request
  2. Be as detailed and precise in describing what you can offer
  3. Once you have found a match for your skill, agree on a time and place
  4. Meet up, share and enjoy
  5. Get an hour and a review for your awesome help

Want to organise a workshop?

Awesome: you will be helping or teaching a whole group!
  1. Start by clicking on the plus sign and follow the steps:
  2. Choose a skill, and write a clear title and an enticing description
  3. Choose a place (your home, a library, a park), date and time
  4. Define the maximum number of participants
  5. Share the event on social media, and start by inviting your friends and neighbours
  6. Get in touch with us if you need any help
When you arrange a workshop, you can choose to support a charity or a cause by asking your participants to pay a fee to that cause or charity. Talk to us and we'll help you with that.
