In partnership with the Community Media Association, the Media Trust's Local360 Network delivered a 1-day intensive workshop on compliance with the Ofcom Broadcast Code for over 30 volunteers from Unity 101 and other community radio stations.
The workshop was delivered by Lawrie Hallett, Senior Lecturer in Radio at the University of Bedfordshire, and former Senior Associate in the Ofcom Radio team with special responsibility for community radio.
The workshop was aimed to enhance awareness of compliance issues regarding Ofcom regulations, and to provide community radio stations with up-to-date and essential information required to operate on air.
The workshop included sessions on Ofcom Code overview and key areas of importance, plus a session covering systems, structures and rules for compliance (group work and practical sessions).
