Carers now have their own radio station where they can listen to news about care services not only from the UK but from around the globe. Carers World Radio is produced with a global audience in mind with the aim to deliver information, provide informed discussion with policy makers and to inspire others to provide online audio services for Carers on a global scale.
The small team of presenters, producers and technical staff have been developing audio services for Carers for over ten years. Although their team is small they are committed to provide a platform for Carers to learn about developments in policy, services, and help you find out what is available to you in your country.
Carers World Radio programmes are interactive and incite carers to take part in them. Their philosophy is “Who knows the issues Carers face on a day to day basis but Carers”. The idea is to hear stories about your life as a Carer, if you feel you can share these with the rest of the world and it does not matter where you are in the world.
At the radio’s website http://www.carersworldradio.com/ you can find recorded programmes of special events they’ve covered as well as interviews with authorities and carers. All of the programmes can be downloaded as podcasts or as windows media files.
The focus on Carers issues over the last few years has risen after all Carers is everyone’s business and can be part of anyone’s life. Initiatives like Carers World Radio are always very much welcomed by the community.
