Radio Sunderland for Hospitals is a registered charity run by a small team of enthusiastic, unpaid volunteers.
There are a variety of tasks involved in running Radio Sunderland and we are always looking for new volunteers to help keep us "on-air".
You can watch a video of the work of a typical Hospital Radio station by clicking here.
Although our members are all volunteers, we do try to run the station along professional lines and we ask any prospective member to consider carefully the level of commitment joining us would entail - it can be surprisingly time consuming.
As a member, your minimum commitment consists of:
1. Collecting requests from patients at the Sunderland Royal Hospital approximately once every 3 to 4 weeks.
2. Helping with the fundraising activities of the station.
3. If you would like to get involved with live programme's, then you will also be expected to be able to attend the studio for at least one night per week for 13 consecutive weeks.
If you are prepared for this level of commitment then the first thing you should do is contact us by email, telephone or post to say that you are interested in becoming a volunteer. You will then be invited to our studios for a look around and to find out more about what we do .
To find out what happens after that, go to First Steps.
