Summary

 

We worked with Healthwatch Torbay to develop some radio workshops and broadcasts around bullying. We worked with a small, established group researching and exploring ideas around bullying and then producing an online live radio show including personal testimony, research material and thematic music.  The aim of the show was to support and signpost other young listeners. They went on to apply for some New Wave funding to support producing a live broadcast at Parkfield.

 

Key aims

 

•Develop issue-based programming for Parkfiled Xtreme Radio to support and signpost young listeners

•Encourage dialogue between young people and policy makers around health and well-being

•Develop confidence, communication and social skills of young participants

•Encourage entrepreneurship
