Hampshire disability charity Enham Trust needs YOUR help to measure ‘the power of radio

Do you listen to the radio? What kind of programmes do you prefer? Do you tune in when you’re bored, because you want to catch up on the football results or do you just listen for the company? This week, Radio Enham has launched a survey to measure the ‘power of radio’ and would like to hear the opinions of listeners from across the south. Radio Enham is a social enterprise managed by Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust. It was launched in 2011 and currently supports 40 presenters, researchers and production staff with complex needs to build their confidence and professional broadcasting skills. “It’s our voice to the wider world,” says presenter Lizzie. Radio Enham boasts listeners all over the world, including Norway, Bahrain and Australia. Its programmes cover a wide range of topics relevant to disabled people – from getting a blue badge and testing different wheelchairs to finding accessible holidays. Thanks to its growing success, Radio Enham recently moved to brand new state-of-the-art studios, which will be officially opened at the end of February. Neill Young, Enham Trust’s Head of PR & Media, says, “Radio Enham is a station run by disabled people expressing their view. Some presenters who barely spoke before joining the team are regularly broadcasting – an inspiring example of the true ‘power of radio’. And now we’re really keen to hear from listeners across the region about what radio means to them.” Get your voice heard too by completing this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Powerofradio2015 If you want to hear more from Radio Enham, log on to their website: www.radioenham.co.uk or follow them on Twitter: @RadioEnham
