Want to Make a Change in your Community


Everyone’s Voice Counts….So LET’S HEAR YOURS!

Near FM (in association with CRAOL and The Community Foundation for Ireland) will be giving FREE Radio Training to people aged 55+ who would like to see a change in their community and want to be part of that change. This course is a QQI Level 3 accredited course in ‘Media Expression’ and is about making radio that matters and giving people a chance to have their say.

The course will start in October and will be held from 9.30am to 1pm on Wednesday mornings for 10 weeks.

Over the duration of the course participants will work with the trainer to create an hour of programming that advocates for change in their community, and these programs will then be broadcast on Near FM 90.3 and then on all 27 Community Radio stations nationwide through CRAOL.

This FREE training course will facilitate participants to make great radio. Great radio is being able to engage those listening while making a compelling case for change. It will give them an introduction to advocacy, media and radio production and will hopefully inspire and equip participants to get involved in advocating for change on issues that matter to them, and enthuse them about the power of community media.

The Course will be run over 10 x Wednesday mornings and is completely FREE!!
