Refugee Radio

Refugee Radio is a weekly programme produced by the human rights charity, Refugee Radio, Sunday 8-9pm, repeated Thursday 2pm

Refugee Radio is a weekly programme produced by the human rights charity, Refugee Radio. The programme aims to give a voice to refugees and asylum seekers so that they can communicate with their new community.

Refugee Radio provides a unique opportunity for the general public to hear refugees and asylum seekers share their stories about how they came to live in the area and how it is different from their home country. These are not the usual stories about refugees and the are not the usual stories about our area. Listeners can also hear music from different countries and cultures that the refugees brought with them in the form of their own personal "desert island discs". This is not just world music filtered by western trend-setters but the authentic sounds of people's life stories.
.
Until now the debate about asylum and immigration in the media has featured people talking about refugees but we have not heard from refugees themselves. Through the Refugee Radio programme we have started to change this. Listeners in our area are able to hear from refugees directly as they really are, not as statistics or social issues but as human beings.
