Soha Housing is a successful, award-winning, community-based housing provider working in and around south Oxfordshire. They provide homes for affordable rent and shared ownership for people who prefer to rent (or who can't afford to rent or buy in the private sector).

Syndicut have worked with Soha Housing, a local not-for-profit business, to create a new and engaging annual report. Not only informative, the new format showcases Soha tenants’ work through a collection of video shorts, all created, filmed and edited by the residents. The shorts are housed within a microsite, ‘Soha Shorts’ (

One of the project’s objectives was to encourage tenants’ participation through the featured shorts, highlighting key topics such as customer services, responsive repairs and environment. The microsite also contains a Storify feed to pull through additional comments from Twitter and YouTube by using #SohaShorts and a functionality for visitors to comment on the clips encouraging further engagement.
