Using media creatively to transform lives.

Every gift, no matter the size, will be used to support vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and communities across the North East of Scotland.

Since its inception in 2003, shmu has transformed the lives of thousands of people in Aberdeen and the surrounding area.  Every year we support over 500 children from the regeneration areas of Aberdeen to be all they can be; we are the highest performing employability provider in the North East supporting over 100 young people a year into work, further education or training; we manage the only creative media unit operating in a prison in Scotland, supporting over 100 participants a year to develop new skills and supporting them in their journey back into the community.

We also work with over 250 volunteers a week to support the production of a range of media platforms that provide essential information to those who are hardest to reach in our communities. This includes shmuFM our community radio station, broadcasting daily from 6am-midnight; and our community magazines with a print run of 26,500 which are distributed free through every door across the regeneration areas of Aberdeen.

Charity No: SC034211
