<span style="color: #ffffff;">Compendium Living's sole purpose is to make a dramatic difference to peoples’ lives. They do this through a well-rounded and dynamic approach to regeneration and urban renewal.</span>
<span style="color: #ffffff;">Compendium Housing and Together Housing working with Newground as Newground Together funded this year-long project which included cultural activities and media equipment such as cameras, tablets and computer systems to shoot and edit their story of 2017. Through collaborative engagement with freelancer, Mike Leigh Cooper, the young people developed new skills in media and contributed to the editing of their story and organising a showcase at their youth centre.</span>
<span style="color: #ffffff;">Compendium Living create new, vibrant communities that are designed to be able to grow and flourish. Their vision is to provide communities with a sustainable long-term environment, and most importantly, create a real sense of place..</span>
<h2><span style="color: #b8bbc2;">Challenges</span></h2><span style="color: #ffffff;">With a number of assets already created and archived, this project called for well organised content management and a simple system to be able to find and use content while in session with young people, and during 1-2-1 meetings with youth coordinators. As the year progressed, we continued creating content and involving young people as much as possible, drawing on Mike's experience on youth projects and understanding of data protection, safeguarding and facilitation.</span>
<span style="color: #ffffff;">When young people could add input, we handed the reigns over to them as far as they were comfortable and took control when we needed to while still following their guidance along with organisational requirements and influence from stakeholders.</span>

The young people at INGs are certainly getting a lot of support and amazing activities to take part in.
