Community Reporters 

InterviewingVolunteering as a community reporter is a good way of getting experience, if you are a new radio broadcaster / media worker, whilst at the same time making sure that local voices and stories are heard.

For community reporting you don't have to look for the big stories, names or events - we particularly want interviews with members of the community who are organising local groups or small events, or who have interesting stories to tell about their lives.  The form below suggests topics which you might like to report on - feel free to suggest others.  

InterviewingJoin our network of volunteer Community Reporters in and around London if you:

  • have some skills in interviewing, recording and editing (eg. you may have trained on a short radio production course)

  • would like to report on people and events in your local community or around London

  • have some free time and want to do some reporting as a volunteer - this can be regularly or just occasionally, depending on your other commitments.

You don't have to have your own recording or editing equipment, although it will be very useful for you if you do.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
