North Manchester FM has launched a scheme to get people with disabilities involved in radio. The NO LIMITS project is being co-ordinated by North Manchester FM and funded by North West Together We Can.
The scheme will involve training volunteers over a 10 week period in all aspects of radio broadcasting and production, culminating in a brand new weekly NO LIMITS programme.
Volunteers will attend regular training sessions, support meetings and one on one sessions which will provide new skills, techniques and build confidence in a safe, fun and accessible environment. Volunteers will be trained to produce and present a weekly live one hour show independently including how to plan, use the desk, research and interview on the radio.
We are looking for around 15 volunteers to get involved in the scheme and encourage people from all backgrounds, ages and ethnicities. The station will be working closely with other local groups including Adult Social Care, Manchester LINk and the voluntary and community sector.
