The Weir Charitable Trust was delighted to fund the appointment of a co-ordinator/trainer to support radio presenters who were new to radio or had little radio experience.

Deepness Dementia’s Chair, Ron Coleman, said

The Co-ordinator role was identified as essential to ensure we could train people with dementia to create and deliver relevant content.   As a result of receiving the award from The Weir Charitable Trust we have had feedback from listeners that the mix between music and chat is creating engaging conversations”.

Feedback from one of the Deepness DJ’s reports ‘I used to tell people I had early onset dementia when they asked me what I did for a living.   Now I tell them I am a radio DJ.   How cool is that!”
