Community radio accessibility project

Improve and update the accessibility of our station

Project details

Suggested by: Kerri-Lee

Project partner: 3CR Community Radio

Budget

$98,000.00

3CR Community Radio is my local radio station, and each week I present Blaknoise Radio, a show about arts, culture and politics from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. I'm one of nearly 400 volunteers who access the station each week. Our station desperately needs to be more made accessible. As someone on a disability pension, sometimes it's a challenge to move around the building and access everything I need to. The station needs up-to-date handrails, doors, ramps, taps and other things so that existing volunteers, new recruits and our wonderful guests can access the station more easily and safely.

3CR has been in my local community for more than 40 years. It provides great broadcast training, resourcing and support for me and so many other people to have an independent, uncensored community voice. With improved facilities our station will increase the community's ability to access the airwaves. For existing volunteers like me this will make a vast difference, as I'll be able to move through the station with ease. It will also increase the possibility of more people with disabilities having a voice in the media, and confidence through communication. These are basic needs to enable equitable access.

3CR single-handedly gives voice to the greatest diversity of our culture. We need to support them to continue their great work and inclusivity of all walks/or rolls of life. A most deserving unit!

3CR rocks as a radio station which walks the talk of inclusion! I totally support their application to make their premises more accessible. As a wheelchair-using artist, I have often been on air with the wonderful Liz Wright, talking all things access. This will make it easier!

I did a show at 3CR 20 yrs ago and the decor doesn't look like it's changed much? 3CR is public access radio, that means easy access for everyone. This initiative gets my vote!!

Considering 20 of the Aussie population have disability issues, this is definitely required.

This space really needs some important accessibility features to make it safer and easier to move around for all users of all abilities, especially volunteers, the backbone of the station.
