Plains FM provides media opportunities for not-for-profit groups and organisations to have a voice on air. Children, youth, people with disabilities, newcomers and kiwi-born alike learn broadcast skills and share their stories, cultures, views, ideas, promote their activities and connect to the Canterbury community.
With 80 programmes in 15 languages we know many more people would engage with us if we can keep costs to a minimum.
Plains FM is by the people for the people - we champion direct media involvement by the region’s diverse communities.
We serve our community by: Providing facilities and training for Canterbury's groups, organisations, schools and citizens to share their views, opinions, ideas, culture and beliefs - in their own way and language of choice at low cost.
We support our community by:
•Giving a voice to promote interests, views, and beliefs
•Preserving language and cultural identity,
•Challenging opinions, misconceptions, and stereotypes,
•Empowering individuals with new skills and an independant voice
•Encouraging community development and the creation of strong community networks.
We provide a vital outlet for minority interests not otherwise represented in mainstream media.
