This month, we'll be hearing from Mark White of Comoodle about how a culture of sharing is being created in Kirklees

Comoodle is a community resource sharing project managed by Kirklees Council and funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The project encourages groups, businesses and individuals to share their stuff, space and skills to deliver and enhance community events and activities. Transactions take place via an online platform, which captures metrics to demonstrate the social value that is being generated by shared assets.

The project has been active since 2015 and since they began trading the Comoodle team have processed nearly 850 requests and overseen 530 exchanges of stuff, space and skills. It is estimated that 448 separate groups have saved over £31,000 between them through shared use as opposed to buying or hiring. Over 37,000 Kirklees residents have benefitted so far from the scheme.

Mark White is the Project Manager for Comoodle and works for Kirklees Council’s Communities Service. He has previously worked for Calderdale and Bradford Council and the Civil Service. His interest is in creating a genuine sharing economy across Kirklees and the wider West Yorkshire community.
