The Rossie Way – Community radio service
Elderly and high-risk groups
Roscommon Lions Club – community-based charity organisation together with other stakeholders, including Roscommon County Council.
Without normal access to visitors and social outlets, and with just negative information from mainstream media people's mental wellbeing is being challenged. The Rossie Way community radio aims to reach people in higher-risk groups, especially in rural areas who tend to be isolated due to the severe restrictions placed on them.
This initiative can easily be adapted to local needs and tailored to suit relevant themes and situations. This will ensure mental well-being and strengthen the community by maintaining social connection for target groups. Key requirements are access to the Radio mast/tower and broadcasting license where necessary.
