During this time volunteers are currently working from home.

Recording Engineers are needed on Fridays from 12pm to record readings and interviews.

The Talking Newspaper has approximately 40 volunteers who work on days to suit their other commitments, normally every four weeks. The monthly magazine is produced for issue at the beginning of each month.

We need people who are IT competent to join our recording engineers. The main job is recording the selection of articles from the local papers on Fridays from approximately 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. The master recording is then copied on to mp3 sticks and placed in pourches for collection by the Post Office at 4.00 p.m. There are sometimes requests for recording interviews or readings on other days.

We always ensure any volunteer receives training in the use of our equipment and we never roster anyone for duty until both volunteer and mentor are completely happy. Duty is normally once a month and a rota is circulated to volunteers every quarter, so there is plenty of time to swap if necessary.

What skills do I need?

Ability to work amicably with others.

  • Disability
