Coventry Spirit Radio is the charity behind Radio Plus. Our mission is to use the media to positively influence a 16-35 year old generation across Coventry to love and follow Jesus.
Radio Plus is a community radio station that's run by Christians, working in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring a fresh message of hope and a life worth living to Coventry and the surrounding areas. Radio Plus aims to appeal to 16-35 year olds in Coventry with a vibrant and positive approach to radio. We offer media training for those not in education, employment or training via our Routes to Employment course, aimed at marginalised and vulnerable young people.
Why the community needs us:
We inspire our listeners toward service within the community, making healthy lifestyle choices. We signpost 12,500 listeners per week, aged between 16 and 35, towards services that can support them in Coventry. We profile projects and events from across all sectors in the city. The Routes to Employment project specifically addresses high youth unemployment in Coventry by providing training for young people aged 16-24, referred by our partner agencies.
Our impact on the community:
We reach over 12,500 listeners (16-35 years old) each week and have supported 21 young people into employment or further training on our Routes to Employment Media course in its first pilot year.
