Paxton Green Timebank is a member led organisation.
Open to the whole community, we take referrals from the staff team at Paxton Green Practice and other organisations. People can also self refer, as members often come to the timebank through word of mouth and from meeting us at local events, such as our drop in every Monday at the Practice.
Drop in’s and all activities are currently suspended due to Covid

History of Paxton Green Time Bank
In February 2008, Drs Kevin Brinkhurst and Gemma Anson, General Practitioners based at Paxton Green Group Practice considered a proposal to Lambeth Primary Care Trust for a Time Bank in this area.
The inspiration was Rushey Green Time Bank, Catford, and after a lot of research and visiting other South London Time Banks, a bid for a Special Fund established by Lambeth PCT was submitted. The practice was delighted when the PCT agreed to fund a Time Bank for 2 years. Two interim staff were employed to generate local interest in timebanking, and to recruit a board of trustees. The team came into post in September 2008 and were working out of Paxton Green Practice before moving to Kingswood House in November 2008.
