CBAA Webinars

WEBINAR: Fundraising at your station - 28 January

Danny Chifley, 21st December 2015

Raising funds and creating revenue is essential to ensuring that your station remains sustainable. To maximise the value of existing revenue sources and best explore new opportunities, stations need to have a clear understanding of best practices and develop a plan that includes a range of revenue streams, such as donations, grants and radiothons.

The 2016 series of CBAA Webinars begins with a look at a topic of perpetual interest to all community broadcasters, maximising the effectiveness of fundraising at your station.

Bring your station's success stories and questions - learn from each other and from our presenter.

Who this webinar is for:

Station volunteers, staff and management wishing to arm themselves with the tools to take station fundraising to the next level.

The National Listener Survey has been carried out by CBAA in partnership with McNair Ingenuity Research since 2004. The surveys provide invaluable feedback to the community broadcasting sector and local community stations about trends, listeners and the sector itself. This information is freely available to the community broadcasting sector via a series of Fact Sheets, and can be used as part of marketing & sponsorship proposals.


Very few scholars of community radio in Britain have discussed funding in detail since the introduction of full-time community radio licences in the country (Lewis 1977, 2008, 2012; Lewis and Booth 1989). Some have pointed out the possible pitfalls in the British case of reliance on social objectives funding (Gordon 2009). Bearing in mind the historical development of community radio in the United Kingdom, this article, traces the contours of the origins and development of community radio under the New Labour government. It discusses how the change in the political landscape, with the landslide victory of the Labour Party in 1997, affected the social, cultural and media policies that followed. While, in the end, the sector got what it had campaigned for since the first lobbying efforts in 1977 (Lewis and Booth 1989), the current shape of the sector was much influenced by the political context after 1997 and the strategies adopted to get the legislation through in 2004.
