Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) is a volunteer-led, community organisation that uses engagement with Community Radio as a tool for personal development, empowerment and social change.
Following my initial involvement with the station in May, I was interviewed last week on the current issues for musicians and the recording will be broadcast later today.
BCB provides the Community Radio station for Bradford and has successfully worked at the heart of communities for 25 years, supporting local people to be active in their community, the city, and to have a voice in the media.
BCB has over 200 active volunteers from Bradford’s diverse communities, mostly serving as volunteer broadcasters, or volunteer station managers supporting the work of others. BCB has a small staff team that offers training and support to volunteers. We particularly engage people from marginalised or disadvantaged communities e.g. older people, refugees, women, LGBTQ community, mental health service users, people in recovery, excluded young people, communities on outlying estates, people encountering poverty, BAME communities, carers and people with disabilities.
