Skills for life

Funding level: £10,001 to £25,000


Music see's no boundaries, and we believe that it is a great way of bringing people together from all walks of life.
Your funding will allow Academy FM Thanet to reach out to a wider community.
We would like to offer organisations and groups , of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, the chance to find out more about Academy FM and what is involved in working in a local community charity radio station .
We currently run training sessions at the radio station, but would love to take these workshops out to organisations and groups who cannot get to us.
What individuals gain from our workshops include, improving their core communication skills, self confidence and team working abilities. Additionally they will also gain valuable skills in news gathering, writing, management and presentation skills.
To be able to do this, we need a vehicle that is equipped with portable studio equipment, and would appreciate your help in helping us to make this dream a reality.

Moment of Pride

We’re very proud of our team of volunteers. Being the only link to the outside world for some, our listeners become our friends. One of our students we’re especially proud of is Tom Brooks who at 16 joined us, after learning all aspects of radio, now works in Barcelona as a GB sports commentator.
