Details about the Care Provider :
Welcome to Ash-worth Time Bank

We are an innovative rural community charity encouraging people to share their skills and time with each other and with older members of the community.

We started out over 10 years ago organising job exchanges in rural Cheshire West and now have over 350 members in 18 villages, giving and receiving practical help, as well as a wide range of services. In addition to job exchanges, we organise social and activity groups including lunch groups, Keeping History Alive, Art, French, German, Knitting, Tai Chi and Textiles. We also have a walking group and organise gentle strolls for people who prefer to walk a shorter distance.

Our Patient and Carer Support at Home project matches volunteers to people with life-limiting illnesses and provides help and support in a variety of different ways, depending on individual circumstances. Please see our website PACS tab for further information.

We are fortunate to be currently supported by grants from the Westminster Foundation, Cheshire Community Foundation, the Williams Family Foundation and Festival Church, Chester. In the past we have received grants from the Tudor Trust, Lloyds TSB Foundation, the Big Lottery, the Allen Lane Foundation, Cheshire West and Chester and Garfield Weston, for which we are extremely grateful.

We welcome visitors to our office Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 12.30pm.
