We're asking you to email HM Treasury to urge the Chancellor to fund a Community Radio Stimulus Package to help community radio stations rebuild our high streets and town centres. It's a very tight deadline as the Chancellor is expected to make a statement on Wednesday 8th July - so get your family and friends involved too!
Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, more than 300 community radio stations have played a vital role in galvanising local support, developing information networks, and supporting neighbourhood connections. However, at a time when their communities now need them to help rebuild, these stations are facing significant hardship, reductions in staff and capacity, and possible closure.
A small amount of support from the Treasury now will help the community radio sector to play its part in regenerating local economies throughout the UK.
