An urban regeneration scheme where unemployed Mancunians are trained in radio production, enabling them to set up radio stations for their own communities.
Since 1999, Manchester-based charity Radio Regen has enabled more than 10,000 residents of disadvantaged areas of Manchester, Salford and the North West to get on air. Their ground-breaking experiment in how community radio tackles disadvantage and aids regeneration has included three full-time stations and more than 30 temporary Restricted Service Licence (RSL) broadcasts. These have been backed up by accredited training in radio production for local volunteers as well as art, youth and community development projects.
