Social Bartering with Favabank...

Favabank Community Bartering Favabank is modernising the age old idea of barter, exchanging items and time as favours between members of your community. Connect with people in your neighbourhood via the exchange of favours.

Bartering Favours Next time you need a helping hand or need to borrow something, why not try to source it from your local community?

Barter and Recycle Your Unwanted Stuff All barter exchanges are tracked using a virtual currency called a 'Fava', to create a 'gift economy' where the more you have given, the more likely that people will want to reciprocate. The Fava is the foundation for 'pay it forward' economics.

Suggest a Listing

We'd appreciate your suggestions for our community directory at 'Suggest a Listing'

  • All suggestions will be approved before publication.
  • Suggestions must have a web site / page.
  • Submissions are accepted from website owners, or anyone who thinks the resource is worthy of inclusion.
  • Submissions only accepted by Favabank members. Please sign up or log in to make a suggestion.

The Community Directory

Our aim is to create a directory of websites, clubs, organisations and businesses in your local area. Initially the directory will have a special focus on local blogs, and websites offering community currencies or peer-to-peer sharing opportunities.

We hope the directory will build to form a valuable resource for Favabank users and will also include a "What's On" guide to help us keep in touch with what's going on in our communities.

Future Plans for the Directory

Our initial challenge will be in building a sufficient membership in all regions to ensure that users are able to find good matches for their offers and wants. Favabank will therefore be initially aimed at facilitating 'neighbour to neighbour' transactions.

In the future we may offer organisations and businesses the facility to trade with Favas, both amongst one another on a B2B bartering basis or with ordinary Favabank members. This may be seen by commercial organisations both as a promotional tool or cost saving mechanism and to non-commercial organisations it may prove to be a good way of engaging with volunteers and contributors.
