We are delighted to announce that we have reached the final voting stage of the Aviva Community Fund with the GMCASE Unity Radio Project.
Following Ann Coffey MP Report into Child Sexual Exploitation in Greater Manchester, a group of organisations were brought together to create the Greater Manchester Campaign Against Sexual Exploitation (GMCASE) and Survivors Manchester CEO, Duncan, is the current Chair.
GMCASE identified that what young people spoken to wanted was a platform to talk to other young people and after many meetings, Unity Radio were brought in and the rest, as they say, is history.
Young people have been involved in every aspect of designing, planning and delivering this project, from the content of the radio show being decided, to the production and hosting. Some of the young people involved in the project themselves have been sexually exploited and are using the project as a way of healing.
We know that young people are more likely to trust and listen to other young people than ‘suits’ or ‘uniforms’. Isolated children who tune in, listening in the dark, will know that they are not alone and that there is help out there. Young people will have a number of roles in the project including audio production, music production, research, marketing/public relations and producer.
