RIOT Radio will be podcasting live via the internet from riotradio.co.uk, with a view to becoming a fully fledged FM community station when applications open in June. The organisation behind the launch is RIOT Recovery Champions, a service user forum with charitable objectives run and maintained by service users. Founded in 2009, its goals are to provide a support service for service users going into treatment or who are in recovery with a view to promoting abstinence at all levels through our Recovery Champions model.
James McDermott, founder of RIOT remarked
“RIOT Radio is the next step for RIOT, we aim to break stigma and show the community what can be achieved by those in recovery”
