Alongside the radio station, Future Projects delivers that mission through Future Support and Future Education.
Future Support is a collection of specialist support services helping those most in need, in areas such as housing and homelessness, welfare entitlements, family support, debt and money advice, health and wellbeing, employability support, loneliness and isolation, and any other challenges being faced by vulnerable people in our communities.
Future Education is a specialist independent school which engages children with complex needs and nurtures them to become successful adults through an academic and therapeutic curriculum.
Future Radio is Norwich’s community radio station, broadcasting 24 hours a day online, via D.A.B. and FM to a potential audience of around 381,000 people across the greater Norwich area. The station is staffed by approx. 70 volunteers and acts as a platform for local communities, promoting talent, supporting businesses and offering training and career development opportunities. Our ambition is to create radio that everyone who considers themselves a resident of Norwich, enjoys listening to, no matter where in the world they are!
