Sounddelivery Media is a new charity
We believe in a confident social sector able to develop and amplify lived experience stories and expertise to address social inequalities.
We want to see people in positions to use their lived experience of social injustice so they can influence change on that issue.
We work towards greater representation and diversity of the voices we hear in the media and beyond.
Our Spokesperson Network
Our programme creates a network of media savvy spokespeople, who have direct experience of social injustices. Developed collaboratively with a network of leaders with lived experience, it aims to diversify the voices we hear in the media and make it more representative of the society we live in. Through training, media mentoring, peer support and speaking opportunities, we tackle the barriers that prevent these experts from engaging with journalists who have the power to influence coverage and ultimately drive change.
What people have said about us
"Being the Story is an amazing platform for those who are working for social change. Not only did it give us a platform, the team behind it pushed our story into the mainstream media where it has been given a lot of attention, enabling us to gain funding to support the countless young people in our communities faced with issues of knife crime."Simeon Moore, DatsTV
