We're still collecting donations

On the 5th April 2022 we'd raised £20,520 with 121 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

Wow! We're in Stretch Target! 

Every extra £ we receive will go directly into running our community radio station, giving more opportunity for local people to gain new skills, keeping the community updated and bringing the sound of Salford City Radio to you!

One member of staff and around 80 volunteers and endless guests make up the team that is Salford City Radio, and we are proud to have served our Salford community for nearly 15 years, providing a platform and a voice for community and charitable organisations, local businesses, schools, local theatres, artists and musicians from Salford and further afield, and much, much more.1646412804_20181009_190355_(2).jpg


As we apply to renew our Ofcom licence for the next 5 years, we need financial support to assist with the cost of that and other licence fees, equipment and running costs.

Your donation will help us to  continue to keep our community resource open providing opportunities for everyone both now and in the future.


About Us

Why would a radio station need to crowdfund? 

Because although like commercial stations we produce shows and adverts, we don't make lots of money, we're a not-for-profit community station whose shows are all produced and presented by volunteers from all backgrounds and all levels of ability. It gives them opportunities to learn new skills both in radio and other media, and many transferrable skills, helping to improve self-confidence, develop CVs and increase the potential of gaining paid employment.

The Council kindly supported us financially up to 2016, and still support us by providing accommodation for our studios. Without their support we would have had to close.

We also provide opportunities to our local students to gain valuable experience too. Working together as a team of volunteers, we bring people together, reduce social isolation.



What's the Reward? 

We ask you to help us please if you are able, by making a donation to our crowdfunder. As a thank you for your kind donation, you will be rewarded by opportunities to get a shout out on air, be a guest on air, or maybe even present your very own show!
