Last week Bolton FM were told by the Charity Commission that its Media Academy had successfully achieved charity status.
One of the academy's first projects it 'Young Voices'. 'Young Voices' works with young carers between the ages of 10 and 18 years of age who are caring for a parent with mental health issues.
Living with mental health issues is hard and it can affect children in families too which is why we're running free activities that revolve around creative sessions and workshops in the recording studio and 'think' rooms helping these young people learn new skills and improve confidence through radio and digital media.
To join Young Voices or ask any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 9th annual Bolton Health Mela takes place this Saturday (13th October) from 11am at the University of Bolton, and Bolton FM's roadshow van will be in attendence.
The Health Mela is a unique festival celebrating community health and well-being, building a reputation for excellence in health promotion. It pays attention to issues around health, care and well-being, promotes avenues of empowering and enabling people from all backgrounds to identify necessities and risk factors to work on to improve quality of life among the local community.
Various health and social care practitioners will be available on the day to offer advice and conduct health checks, to promote local services
supporting health and wellbeing. Most importantly to help individuals to make positive changes to their lifestyle which can improve long term health.
Hope to see you there!
