uSWAP

Description

uSWAP is a website where people can swap items, skills, property or labour. The site is free to join and at the moment, adding swaps is also free. A person can swap an item for a skill, a skill for labour, a car for a holiday, or they can swap for cash. It's easy to register on uSWAP and adding a swap is also straightforward. I hope that uSWAP will become a success, as it will show that people with Asperger's Syndrome, such as myself can achieve whatever we want to and we don't have to be consigned to the 'scrapheap', living on benefits.
