Getting started

Click Join to create a new member account and you will be sent a notification email. (Please check your spam folder if you do not see it quickly.)

Confirm your email address by clicking on the link in the notification. 

After this a timebank coordinator will be in touch to arrange a time to talk to you about how the timebank works and help you decide what skills you are willing to offer and services you may like to receive. Please note it may be a day or two before we are in touch.

You will need to provide two referees as a safeguard for the timebank and its members. For some services, police checks may be carried out.

Once your membership application is processed and accepted, you can set up your member profile and get familiar with how to record your timebank trades. If you need help with this please email wairarapatimebank@gmail.com and we will arrange for a Timebank volunteer to give you a hand.
