HOurBank is "a time bank for those living in Southwark and some parts of Lewisham [...] Our members give their time by using their skills for time credits, which they can then use to ‘buy’ someone else’s help [...] We run parties, events, monthly coffee mornings, table-top sales as well as 1-1 exchanges".

It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through time banking. HOurBank is local in orientation and concerned with neighbourhood & community

It was launched in 1999 and is ongoing.
