Community radio

Community radio stations provide a new voice for hundreds of local communities across the UK. Fuelled by the hard work and enthusiasm of volunteers, they reflect a diverse mix of cultures and interests and provide a rich mix of mostly locally-produced content.

They run on a not-for-profit basis and bring community benefits such as training and community news and discussion. Below you will find an overview of community radio, as well as the resources you need for the application process. (There is further information in the stakeholders section of our website.)
