We’re proud to announce that applications are now open to recruit a new cohort of leaders to take part in sounddelivery’s Spokesperson Network Programme and I’d love you to share it with your networks or if you see yourself in the applicant profile – apply!
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 involved with the Spokesperson Network is an experience I will never forget. It feels like I am part of an incredible, unique family. I have learned so much. I always come away with renewed passion, and the goal to keep going no matter how complex the issues I am trying to highlight."Amanda Hailes
