Community radio aims to participate in the life of the community as well as enable that community to participate in the life of the station.
The essential differences between community radio and other types of radio are:
|•||It is run on a not-for-profit basis|
|•||It champions volunteering in the community (the majority of our on-air presenters and off-air helpers are volunteers who receive training in essential skills)|
|•||Individuals and community groups are actively encouraged to take a role in the station to ensure it succeeds in its objective to stimulate community development and capacity building|
Alongside these serious intentions Sunny Govan Community Radio is fun to listen to and our programme schedule includes many types of music, local news and features on topical issues. We aim to provide the broadest possible mix of information and entertainment.
We are proud to be a small, accessible social and cultural tool to be used by local people for personal and communal empowerment. We are based right where we should be, in the community, to work effectively with those people.
