BBC Open Doors
Could you help your local BBC radio station tell others what life is like in your community? They want to meet the everyday people that make it tick.
In return, Open Doors can show you how to get the stories that matter to you noticed. If you are part of a community group or charity, it can also let others see what you do. The five West Midlands BBC local radio stations are keen to talk to groups that work in diverse areas. Everyday stories about different communities can improve understanding and raise awareness about the people and projects that support them.
Open Doors will let you see the media in action and discover how to work with it to your advantage. It offers useful contacts for your group and an opportunity to share stories about under-represented communities. The one off Open Doors events (one at each of the five radio stations) take place on dates in October and November. Places are limited, so if you would like more information or want to take part, just download and complete an application form.
