Do. Be. The blog
Do. Be. began with an online gathering, a blog that organisations that felt they answered YES! to the following questions could self submit to.
The blog is now a colourful and informative online resource of activity in the borough. www.do-be.org.uk
Do. Be. Best Practice
Next came a best practice programme, 3 discussion groups were held to discuss cross-sector best practice, with stakeholders such as Rochdale Youth Service, Barnardos, HMR NHS CCG, Rochdale Council, Rochdale and District Mind and Touchstones Rochdale. These led the production of a Best Practice Manifesto, with aspirations suitable for sporting, cultural and community providers.
See the Do. Be. Manifesto (and all our other publications/reports!) here on Issuu
The Do. Be. Manifesto was launched at an event held at Touchstones Rochdale and all submitted organisations were invited. We presented the Manifesto and facilitated a carosel of activities linked to each element. These included a Professsional Practice Discussion group, A 'Wellbeing Island' creative activity, A 'Youth Proofing' workshop, Open Choice feedback and a 'Collaboration Sculpture activity.

Do. Be. The Collection
We are producing a publication for this project, featuring all providers and organisations involved in Do. Be. outlining Best Practice and providing information and links to further support. This will be available in August 2017, we hope that organisations will use this publication to find and refer children families and young people to the diverse range of supportive activity provided across the borough.

The Do. Be. project will become part of a powerful and vital publication and referral tool so the public, health and support services can refer more children and young people to healthy, creative and engaging activity.
The Do. Be. is an innovative and engaging online (blog) and offline project which is adaptable as a research, mapping method that engages communities. For more information on how we can help you use this method, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
