The problem we are trying to solve is the negativity and sheer lack of disability radio talent out there. Our aim and goal is to help the disabled and range of needs the ability to be able to achieve their own goals and aspirations to be within the radio industry. With the ability to do everything within a working employment environment. We are broadcasting via internet only but would like to broadcast via DAB so that we can reach more people within Surrey and give the disability & needs a voice within the local community. This is something in our area where the major stations only do a small bit of. Here our presenters/producers etc will learn all aspects of the radio industry and also the ability to be able to run their very own successful radio station. Also being on DAB we are more likely to be able to get radio advertising so that we can employ these people. They are really looking forward to being able to take the station where they want too. My goal was always personally to help the people more vulnerable within our society and there really is nothing out here in our communities within Surrey for an opportunity for them. They will have a sense of pride and also some of these people just getting up in the morning in difficult. So this does, and will help with their social aspects of their lives as well as a source of achievement and some of them a reason to get up in the morning. This money will help get us started in the DAB world. It will be able us to access more people who would like to within the radio industry. Also it will allow us to build a state of the art radio studio. Phase 2 of this project will also provide something unique. The chance for people with Disabilities and other needs and abilities to become a Recording Artist and Producer with our very own recording studio. This is also together with our very own record label. So people will be given a chance to promote their music to the world no matter what there ability is. We are very much looking forward to working with big organisations within the music industry and it will be an exciting time for everyone.
