The essential differences between community radio and other types of radio are:

  • It is run on a not-for-profit basis
  • It champions volunteering in the community (the majority of our on-air presenters and off-air helpers are volunteers who receive training in essential skills)
  • Individuals and community groups are actively encouraged to take a role in the station to ensure it succeeds in its objective to stimulate community development and capacity building.
