    • The results of the project
    • Lesson Learnt
      • 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.
