Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Radio Respect was set up in a garden shed by Chris, who suffers with poor mental health. His aim was to provide a radio station that can support people with mental health issues when other services are closed. Chris had a lot of donations of equipment to set up the station. Since then Radio Respect has grown into a popular local mental health organisation supported by the NHS and local job centre. We are in desperate need to update all of our equipment now as it has become unreliable. We have a small vinyl record shop which funds the running of the station but doesn't provide enough income to update the equipment. Radio Respect has become a huge part of our community, providing volunteer opportunities which reduce isolation, provide work experience and peer support as well as broadcasting and supporting local events and other charitable organisations.

What we'll deliver:

  • Continue to provide a service to support people with mental health issues
  • Continue to work with mental health organisations
  • Continue to support local events

Why it's a great idea:

Radio Respect provides a safe, non-clinical environment where people can come and have support for their mental health problems. There are long waiting lists with the NHS and a lot of services are closed on weekends, evenings and bank holidays. Radio Respect is there for them. We can also broadcast live from local events and advertise them on our radio shows bringing the community together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the new equipment
  • Taking out old equipment
  • Putting new equipment in place
  • installing software on new equipment
  • Training volunteers to use new equipment
