Audio Content Fund pilot phase to end March 2022

The Community Media Association (CMA) is obviously disappointed to learn the news that the Audio Content Fund pilot phase is to end. The Audio Content Fund (ACF) has provided great opportunities in linking community radio broadcasters with independent radio producers to make high-quality public service content that would have had very little chance of finding funding elsewhere.

There is a huge need for this work and the popularity of the scheme has been proven. It is therefore vitally important that further support for similar audio production is found as soon as possible. The CMA welcomes all initiatives to seek alternative sources of funding for the ACF and the CMA would welcome the opportunity to be involved.
