COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR LGBT –
KCC Live is a community radio station aimed at 10-24 year olds in Knowsley, identified by numerous reports as one of the most deprived areas of the country. Multiple award winning and unique in concept, KCC Live offers volunteers the opportunity to develop skills through creating content that engages with tens of thousands of other young people. Working with individuals in challenging socioeconomic circumstances, KCC Live seeks to offer a facility that promotes skills building, with volunteers themselves identifying underrepresented issues, genres and contexts within their community and working to produce on-air content to bridge the gap. From music shows involving niche genres and subcultures that exist locally, to documentaries covering LGBT issues, local politics and more, KCC Live affords young people the opportunity to control their own media landscape, engage their peers, and develop in the process.
