We work alongside charities to develop the potential of the stories within their network to change perceptions and influence change.
The change we want to see
sounddelivery media wants to see people in positions to activate their lived experience of social injustice to be able to influence change on that issue. There are thousands of people in our communities with firsthand experience of the issues around us who are full of insights and ideas for solutions to create lasting change. They need the platforms to be heard and listened to, and to be valued for their expertise. We’d like to see more trust and understanding between the media and communities that could lead to greater representation and more diverse voices in the media, and journalists telling more nuanced stories using lived experience. We would like to see a more connected media and social sector that can collaborate to raise awareness of social injustice and can find and amplify new solutions to these challenges.
