Hope FM Community Radio
We wish to enable people in our local area to broadcast the work they do within the community over the airwaves and provide details of how people can access the range of services on offer.

About this cause
We are a community radio station and help a range of organisations to share the work they are undertaking within the community. This has been particularly important during the Covid-19 emergency as many community groups needed to share their new delivery arrangements. We also broadcast helpline numbers and specialist programmes like Thanks for the Memory, aimed at elderly people with memory loss.
How this cause brings people in the community together
By broadcasting what community organisations are doing and how their services are accessed, we will work to ensure that information is shared and give details of how people can become involved through volunteering or supporting in other ways. During the lockdown period, this was particularly critical as we shared details of helplines and the work being undertaken in the broader community.
