Radio Respect is a community interest company based in Bognor Regis, West Sussex. Created in 2013, Radio Respect reaches socially and geographically isolated people who are unable to access mental services. Live shows are broadcast week day evening times by a team of passionate and dedicated presenters all of whom suffer mental health challenges. Listeners are encouraged to interact with shows through live on air telephone calls, text message or our dedicated monitored chat room. Mental health organisations promote their work through live interviews or can be recorded for broadcast at a later date. We provide mental health support, peer support, signposting and encouragement to listeners. We encourage and promote people taking back responsibility for their lives for them to move forward. Radio Respect is a critical partner of Pathfinder and West Sussex Partnership trust.

What we'll deliver:

  • Mental Health Support
  • Peer Support
  • Reaching vulnerable and socially isolated people

Why it's a great idea:

Radio Respect is fast becoming a recognised and crucial mental health service. We are able to give true, positive advice and peer support to people through carefully produced radio programmes by presenters that suffer mental health difficulties. Radio Respect provides a unique and powerful platform for mental health organisations, community projects and community interest companies to promote their work and advise listeners on referral processes and what services are available in their area. Radio Respect offers one to one support to people where support is offered through our premises in Bognor Regis. Radio Respect receives on average fifteen people a week through referrals.

Steps to get it done:

  • Obtain a lease on a larger premisses
  • Organise and promote the new premisses
  • Grand Open Day Inviting Local Press

With Radio Respect, the main volume of listeners suffer mental health challenges with a large number of people listening on a regular basis outside the United Kingdom. Mental health is a world wide concern and being an internet radio station, we are able to unite people sharing help, support and companionship. Many of our listeners have made friends across the globe by interacting with our dedicated chat room reducing loneliness.
