Reading Community Radio

Our aim is to become a full-time fm broadcasting community radio station serving the people of Reading, with a specific focus on disadvantaged groups, and providing an enjoyable listening and entertainment experience that caters for all the diverse tastes of the different sectors of our community.

We aim to keep the population of Reading up to date with local events, news and ensure that they are well-informed about local issues. We want to give the people of Reading the opportunity to express their views, opinions and to openly discuss the issues that are important to them. We want to raise their awareness of issues which affect our local community.

We also aim to provide a platform and a voice for other organisations and special interest groups to publicise themselves, as well as aspiring to be the voice of our community members. We aim to be accessible to everyone within our local community and we encourage everyone to participate in our programmes so that we fully represent their views and opinions. We focus our efforts on talking directly to disadvantaged people who might not otherwise be reached, because of their circumstances, social pressure, shame, lack of confidence, lack of aspiration, knowledge or self-esteem.
