The Community Media Association is backing a petition to the Prime Minister calling on Government support for the growing community radio sector. You can help our sector by signing the petition and encouraging your friends, family and work colleagues to do the same.

Over 200 community radio services have been licensed by Ofcom since 2004. Around 150 of these services are on air, creating around 400 jobs, involving over 10,000 volunteers, and serving a potential audience of more than 10 million people.

Yet this new sector is economically very precarious. Six stations have failed to launch, three have handed back their licences. A number of others are at high risk.

It’s easy to help – all you have to is sign up here:
