Down Not Out News Agency in Leicester continues the development of its raDNO show with live ‘on air’ ‘Confidence Through Broadcasting’ training over the internet on Panj Pani Radio today between 12 pm and 4 pm.
Down Not Out is a news agency run by people with experience of homelessness or vulnerable housing. Funded by the Big Lottery it was formed from a partnership between local charity, Action Homeless, and Citizens’ Eye Community News Agency.
Simon Parker, Down Not Out News Agency coordinator said: “I think DNO has made a good start in developing raDNO but there is a lot more to do – especially in getting more people involved. If you are interested just come along – there will be no pressure to speak if you don’t want to – and some of our best contributors started by saying they would never go on air. All we’re looking for is enthusiasm and the ability to drink tea, coffee or another (non-alcoholic) drink of your choice.
Anyone who is interested about getting involved in raDNO can contact:
Simon Parker said: “It’s great that the show will be hosted on Panj Pani Radio as the station is hosted by the NHS Partnership Trust. It allows us to explore the positive, confidence and self-esteem development that broadcasting training can bring and allows us to look at health issues around homelessness.”
