    • Collecting Case Studies
      • Our experience with Local Authority groups was a steep learning curve.
      • Developing local relationships and building trust.
    • Young People
      • Keeping a group of young people who are geographically spread motivated.
      • Stories of young people involved as interesting (if not more so) than the stories they were reporting on.
      • Editing young people’s words to make them more palatable or suitable for an adult audience.
      • Building in time for ‘practice’ before end product is required – the first pieces written had to be used due to time frames.
