Founded 2002

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to:
    • harness the power and reach of our brands to raise awareness and money, in order to help disadvantaged children and young people in the communities in which we broadcast. This manifests as Global’s Make Some Noise, which runs across all of our 8 radio brands. We raise funds in a variety of ways including broadcast appeals, events, corporate partnerships, schools partnerships, treks, runs and digital. The ability to add sparkle to our fundraising mechanics makes us a unique and exciting charity. We support charities who find it hard to get heard – they may be small or dealing with issues that are not well understood. We award grants, raise awareness and tell their story, and lend our expertise.
    • Use our passion and expertise in music to provide training and opportunities for young people. This manifests in two schemes – Music Potential and The Big Music Project – to help young people with employability skills and citizenship.
