A concept inspired by/pinched from Dave Briggs.

Whilst websites like Good Gym, Casserole Club, Streetbank and Freecycle provide different services, ultimately they connect someone who is offering a something with someone who needs something.

This proposal is that a group of councils to come together to create an "Offers/Needs Engine" that could be be used to build more bespoke applications to meet local user needs. The project would ideally see the creation of at least one such front end to provide a practical demonstration of the purpose of the engine.

The engine will use open standards, be open source and be built so it can be incorporated into a wider delivery platform.
