Hello we are Radio Respect, an internet radio station providing help, support, advice, peer support and sign posting for people suffering mental health challenges throughout the United Kingdom. We broadcast live from our purpose built studio in Bognor Regis, West Sussex , evening times from 7pm. Radio Respect has been broadcasting since 2013 and originally started in its creators garden shed with a maximum of five listeners ( one was his wife)!..
A great deal has happened over the last few years, renting office space, buying and begging for equipment, a fantastic band of volunteers, our own in house servers and approx 60,000 regular listeners world wide!
Since the stations creation the entire project is funded personally by its creator, from his monthly wage working as a mental health support worker. The time has now come where we need to move to a bigger premises and update existing equipment. The station has recently secured community interest company status (company number 10876382) as of July 2017. Radio Respect reaches people suffering mental health difficulties that are isolated, both socially and geographically, that are unable to access the help and support so desperately needed.
Radio Respect has been offered a business premises that will be vacant at the end of January, 2018. With this in mind, we currently have no funding for three months deposit and legal fees. The premises offered ticks all the boxes needed in helping Radio Respect grow and expand and continue to provide the vital service the station provides.
