Charity description

Radio Royal at Forth Valley Royal Hospital logo
Radio Royal is full of local people from across Forth Valley who work hard to shape the station into one that is effective, useful and representative of Forth Valley Royal Hospital and the community.

About one third of our members could be described as disadvantaged through illnesses, disabilities, poverty / income, housing / living in a deprived area and education. This also includes socially isolated groups like informal carers. Disadvantaged members are supported by Radio Royal to continue broadcasting despite the difficult challenges they face. All members can access well equipped and maintained studios using the software programmes that are found in professional radio environments. Some of our young members have taken experience and skills from Radio Royal into university, employment in broadcasting/media and community radio.  

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

We are the hospital broadcasting service for Forth Valley, broadcasting from our studios at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital. The primary aim of our service is to help relieve boredom and isolation a period in hospital can cause, helping to relieve sickness and infirmity by providing a pleasant distraction - a chat with one of our Ward Visitors, hearing a favourite piece of music or even laughing along with our presenters. Radio Royal is dedicated to creating equality of opportunity for disadvantaged people as an inclusive organisation, working with both disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged members. We also empower young people who are interested in broadcasting to realise their potential. We give them the opportunity to be equipped to access education or employment that is related to broadcasting. Volunteer members gain skills - boosting self-confidence, communication, interpersonal and team working skills. They can also meet other likeminded and committed local people.

Please donate to support our cause.
