Summary:  The aims of the evaluation were to describe how the trial was implemented and to report on the outcomes as reported by participants and stakeholders. The methods included a literature review and the analysis of data from social media sites (Twitter and Facebook) and data on the registration of users and use of the timebanking system in the Hunter and Central Coast trial sites. The trial demonstrated that timebanks can be a powerful mechanism for community engagement and increased volunteering. To strengthen the future of timebanking, dedicated people are needed to facilitate its rollout in flexible ways to suit the local context. In addition, an overarching social media presence and strategy is recommended.
