Welcome to Streetbank!
Across the UK, people like you are creating a movement to share their things and skills with their neighbours. Together we are unlocking a new kind of wealth – a greener and friendlier kind.
The result? Less waste, stronger communities and access to over £1 million worth of things and skills.
As the cost of living continues to increase and a growing number of us struggle to pay the bills, it’s time to turn to our local communities to share tools, baby gear, tutoring, gardening skills and more on Streetbank, saving us money as we tap into the generosity of our local communities and find a way to give something back too.
Streetbank has become the UK’s largest website of its kind, with 25,789 things and 13,883 skills worth a total of just over £1m* listed to date. Our latest research shows that anyone joining Streetbank in London, for example, has access to an average £7,493 worth of things and skills, available at no cost and within a mile of their home. In Brighton, this figure rises to almost £7,700 and the project is also thriving in less densely populated areas – in Witney, Oxfordshire, for example, the average Streetbank member has over £1,500 available. These figures are growing all the time.
Maire Fordham, Streetbank member from Fulham, London:
“Without Streetbank, I would have hoarded all my baby gear as opposed to meeting someone great and giving it to a deserving home. I might not have met the amazing neighbour who gave knitting lessons to my child while we chatted, or met the neighbour who re-strung my daughter's guitar.”
