Janey Gordon is a leading academic in community radio. She is the author of several books about community media used in Universities across the country, and a Principle Lecturer in Media at the University of Bedfordshire.
The biggest struggle for any community radio station is finding and sustaining funding needed to operate.
One go-to source of funding is The Community Radio Fund. With the deadline for the first round of 2012/13 growing near, we thought we would have a detailed look at how it works, and where exactly that money has been going.

The first round for Ofcom’s Community Radio Funding applications in 2012/3 will open on 9 April.
Grants can only be made to community radio licensees who are broadcasting under a community radio license. The latest application form and guidance notes are available from their website.
The deadline is 11 May 2012.
