Radio Respect only broadcasts online currently, this means only people with the internet and internet devices can listen to us. We would like to update our studio equipment and apply for a community FM broadcast licence. This will enable us to broadcast to people on a lower income, and even the homeless as we can provide small battery powered FM radios to them! We want to reach everyone in our community that suffers with mental health problems regardless of status.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Mental health isn't 9-5. A lot of organisations are closed over night and on bank holidays. Often there are long waiting lists for people accessing help from the NHS. We can provide much needed support when thoise doors are closed. We have no waiting lists if people need someone to talk to. All of our volunteers suffer with mental health issues and are in the perfect position to provide peer support. People in need of help and advice would easily be able to access the radio shows at any time of day.
Steps to get it done:
Other charities and CIC's in the area can use our radio station as a platform to advertise their cause. They can have 'shout outs' on our shows, be interviewed live on air or even have their own show.
