Community radio was founded on principles of social inclusion. However, despite 1 in 5 Australians having a disability (ABS 2008), there are still few programs for or by people with disabilities on generalist stations. What does it take to make community radio work for people with a disability? How can we better support people who may have different needs to participate? In this workshop, hear the stories of people with a disability who have been successfully involved in community radio and develop an action plan to facilitate more involvement of people with disabilities in the sector. The session includes in-person, virtual and pre-recorded messages to the group to help include people with disabilities who were unable to come to the 2016 CBAA Conference.
