Podcast 4 Change is an introductory programme that seeks to bring people together and teach the fundamentals of podcasting, so they can use the skills learnt over the duration of the programme to promote change within their respective communities.
With podcasting becoming the fastest growing medium we see it as a key and vital element to building community resilience! With the sharing of information and experiences through dialogue we believe that change is one step away.

We create this atmosphere by first sharing our own lived experience with dealing with ill mental health, then opening the floor to any questions. in the hope of building rapport . Through out the sessions we will do a couple of group activities to reinforce the rapport building process and further building trust between not only the group and ourselves but between all participants.
