Join MP Radio Community

Medway Pride Radio is a not-for-profit community radio station run by volunteers. The station was founded by Shea Coffey, Hilary Cooke & Helanna Bowler-Irvine, to support Medway Pride, the LGBTQIA+ communities and allies from across all the diverse communities of Medway & Kent.

MPRadio is based at Medway Gender & Sexual Diversity Centre in Rochester in the heart of INTRA, where we aim to be part of the local community. We start broadcasting from 1st February 2021 to support LGBTQIA+ History Month.

Our Volunteers

Are you a interested in working in broadcast radio? Would you like an opportunity to join a local community radio station as a voluntary DJ?

We are looking for volunteers, to help produce and deliver our programs. Whatever your age, if you have a passion for music and are interested in bringing your talents to the airwaves, please get it touch.

You don’t need to have any previous experience as we have a support programme in place, where one of the team can talk you through how it works and what you need to get started.

In additional to the DJ and presenter roles, you can also help out with blogs, news items, and even with the design and social media.

Volunteering can be very rewarding, it can help you gain skills in a new area and, in the current turbulent times, you can get a lot of enjoyment from a new hobby.

We are a community after all!

A Voice for the Community

MP Radio will be a voice for the whole community. We will have a focus on giving a voice to the LGBTQIA+ community, its allies, voluntary organisations and businesses that support the community.

We also want to be a champion for all voluntary organisations to promote the fantastic work they do for every community in Medway & Kent.

MP Radio is based in the INTRA area of Chatham & Rochester and we will be supporting the developments and projects in INTRA by giving a voice to those involved and the work they are doing.

If you are a voluntary organisation who wishes to join the MP Radio community, we are looking to promote you and the work you do for the community through our community pages and broadcast articles.

If you are interested in promoting your work, are able to give an audio or written presentation about your organisation, we will include you as one of our voluntary community organisations which we will advertise for free during our weekly schedule of programs and on our website.
