What’s trending in Copeland 2019

We thought it would be useful to share some trends from Cumbria Exchange. We have started with Copeland because it’s the most popular area on Cumbria Exchange.

At HQ we breakdown, track and report against the following categories:

  • Professional advice
  • Equipment
  • Materials
  • Labour
  • Space/venue
  • Volunteering
  • Training
  • General (this is for something that doesn’t fit under any of the above)

We track every post or request. For instance, we track the progress and level of success of support offered; when a business makes an offer for one or more community organisations. Similarly we track the progress and level of success for support wanted; when a community organisation makes a specific request to the business community.

So if we focus on Copeland here’s what we see at HQ:

Support Wanted top 3 most popular categories are:

  1. Professional Advice
  2. Labour
  3. Volunteering

Support Offered top 3 most popular categories are:

  1. Professional Advice
  2. Labour
  3. Equipment

Overall, the top 3 most popular categories (which match) are:

  1. Professional Advice
  2. Labour
  3. Equipment
