Eleven young residents recently attended a team building residential in the Lake District to develop the next phase of CALM (Connecting Ambitious Leaders Movement). Supported by Hornstars, Train Station and Bemoreplus, they also shared their ambitions and ideas for the change they wish to see in their community.
Michelle Robinson, Community Investment Coordinator at Catalyst Housing said: “In a time where violence is impacting on young people and the rest of the community, Catalyst and the Hyde Group recognise the need to share resources and expertise to address these challenges. This programme is a great example of our long-term collaboration to provide the opportunities, skills, experiences and support for young people to become the leaders that they are.”
This programme is part of Hyde’s Estate of Mine: Our Place, Our Space, Our Future, which is a place-based approach to improve the lives of young people, their families and the wider community. By working in this way, they will create positive activities, safe places for them to connect, and the opportunity to develop skills.
CALM is funded and supported by the Hyde Charitable Trust and Catalyst Gateway.

That’s terrific, wouldn’t it be great to see more of this?! Please could you also tell us more of this project - Hyde’s Estate of Mine...does for young people and their families? Is this Hillside?
Hi Stella, yes this is Hillside - we'll ask Hyde Foundation for more info
This is very good . More information please. But also many youth groups are doing this in a few areas. Would it be better to link in with the other youth groups who already doing this sort of youth leadership so this could happen in more areas across Hyde ?
