We are happy to announce that Faith PR has been appointed by Kirklees Council to deliver a six-month campaign to raise awareness of their unique community sharing project Comoodle.

The online platform which was launched in 2015 and the first of its kind in the UK, encourages businesses and groups to share ‘stuff, space and skills’ across Kirklees.

Following the appointment via a competitive tender process, we have recently launched the first campaign to increase Comoodle’s brand awareness through a range of methods which include; written case studies, engaging social media, video interviews and explainers.

This provides building owners and businesses the opportunity to put any type of available space on the site- whether it’s advertising in window, offering a small meeting room or an entire venue. The space can be used for free or made available for a small charge or donation to charity.

Duggs Carre, Comoodle project manager, said: “More and more businesses and building owners are seeing the benefits of getting involved in their community. Sharing helps to give local organisations a sense of community spirit and residents see that they care about the area they serve. This type of collaboration could lead to strong, local business which is good for us all.”

Hundreds of ‘shares’ have already taken place via Comoodle’s website – from advertising facilities at community centres in Honley, Netherton and Emley, to storage space at Queensgate Market and a parking space at a council depot in Dewsbury.

Founder and managing director Stefanie Hopkins said: “I am thrilled to be working with Kirklees Council to promote such a worthwhile cause. It’s great to see local businesses helping and supporting each other.”

“We have a great deal of experience and we aim to ensure that Comoodle receives maximum amount of coverage so other businesses can get involved.”
