Harrow Communities Click is a new way in which vulnerable adults and any adult who lives in the London Borough of Harrow, aged 18 or over, can exchange services and skills, as well as form mutual networks with others who have a shared interest.
The project is a great way to give to others, whilst gaining something for yourself. The time exchange works in that everyone’s hour of time is equal to that of everyone else, so if you support someone by telephone for an hour you gain an hour’s time credit, you might then spend that on someone weeding and tidying your garden for an hour. You might also use your time credits to gain a new skill such as public speaking. If you have a particular interest, such as walking, that you would like to pursue with others, you can set up a mutual network with other Harrow Communities Click members to do walks together. The project is a great way to meet people, make new friends and spend time with people who have similar interests to you.
Harrow Communities Click is a partnership of Harrow organisations that are committed to improving the lives of local vulnerable people. The project is run in partnership with Age UK Harrow and Mind in Harrow, Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent.
