Inspiration FM has been awarded £2,917 from Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the AVON Fund for Women and Girls.
Inspiration FM is an award winning, community led radio station, providing an outlet for creativity, shared vision and expression. The group aims to provide a voice for those who are under-represented or socially excluded, aspiring to involve and reach as many cultures and age groups as possible.
They provide radio broadcast training, job opportunities and work experience, alongside developing and promoting community radio for the benefit of Northampton and surrounding areas.
Funding from the Foundation will support their ‘Women and Girls of Colour with Voices’ project; a six week programme aimed at giving black and ethnic minority women and girls the chance to deliver their first radio show.
