Changes at RNIB have resulted in a new name for the organisation’s own radio station, Insight Radio.
The station will now be known as RNIB Connect Radio, and be part of a new initiative to build a stronger community of blind and partially sighted people, their families, friends, carers and supporters; a community where people can connect with and support each other.
Initially this has brought together 24,000 former members of RNIB, RNIB Campaigns Network and Action Connect to create a wider and stronger community led by blind and partially sighted people.
RNIB Connect Radio will be an integral part of this, aiming to bring together the station’s 135,300 listeners. It will provide a platform for people to share experiences of living with little or no sight, inform and create new programming on topics of interest and be relevant to listeners throughout the UK.
Programmes and presenters will stay the same, it’s just the name which changes.
