Triangle has been commissioned by housing association client, Irwell Valley to create a ‘infobook’ that captures the essence of the association’s supported housing schemes in and around Manchester, demonstrating the valuable work they do in the communities they serve. Covering a range of supported housing for people suffering from dementia and mental health issues to homeless, vulnerable women, and young people with sensory and physical disabilities, the infobook is intended to promote and explain how the supported housing schemes work and highlight the very real success stories they have had.
Entitled ‘Real Lives, Real Stories’, the infobook focuses on the experiences of residents in the schemes, telling their back stories and, in their own words, explaining how Irwell Valley’s supported housing has made a real difference to their lives.
Talking about the project, Chris Hamer, MD of Triangle said: “We thought the best way of telling the Irwell Valley story was to ask the residents to tell it for us. At first, I wasn’t sure how keen they would be to get involved, but the enthusiasm from everybody was fantastic. The great thing is that, even though, many of the residents have had a really tough time, nobody we met felt sorry for themselves, there was just this feeling of positivity and looking forward to the future. It was a great project to work on.”
The infobook will be published in November.
