Become a Friend of Radio Plus by making regular donations to help secure our next broadcasting licence!
Radio Plus has the potential to be a significant force for good in Coventry; to offer a message of hope and encouragement, whilst supporting people and signposting them to services and agencies that can help them and positively impact their lives.
Radio Plus offers volunteering and work experience opportunities with media training. To date, we are run by over 50 volunteers who have all been up-skilled with media-related training. We partner with local churches, businesses, charities and the voluntary sector to give opportunities to profile their work and events. The vision is to create a thriving community media hub, bringing together co-located businesses, artists and charitable activity around Radio Plus.
Our programme schedule includes a sports show, chat shows, and a range of speciality music shows including Reggae, Irish Folk, Hip Hop, Gospel, Worship, and Drum and Bass music originating from the interests of our local presenters and listeners. We engage with our listeners via social media, phone-ins, emails, and our blog in order to build long-standing relationships.
It might surprise you to know that all this activity has been achieved so far with no paid staff, with an annual cost of around £60,000!
To maintain and grow the ministry of Radio Plus, more funding is needed to employ core staff, increase the programme schedule and build advertising revenue. As a ‘community radio station’ Radio Plus must rely on grants and donations for at least 50% of its income, unlike commercial stations.
You can support Radio Plus by; making a one-time donation, giving monthly, purchasing advertising space, sponsoring our programmes or promoting Radio Plus amongst your contacts.
We are grateful for all the support that you can give us and we look forward to sharing our work with you.
