The long wait for charitable status

1334507533

There’s no denying that the road to charitable registration is a long one, full of frustration. What used to take a couple of weeks to complete now takes around 6 months or more, due to the underfunding and workload at the Charities Commission.

We will get there, but in the meantime, we have to constantly find ways to fund ourselves and cover the essential costs that keep us on air. Sponsors and backers are hard to find when we can’t yet offer them the Tax breaks and benefits complete charitable status enables.

Right now, we are offering low-cost ads, while we build the audience, and the production of audible messages for use on social media etc until we can establish and equip our live broadcast studio.
If you’d like to help us, we’d love to hear from you, until then we’ll keep pushing out around 16 hours of new shows per week on the loop. We have a great and growing team so do please listen in.
