About us

Stirling Community Media is a Scottish charitable organisation (SCIO) registered in November  2018. We use the media to support communities, promote the arts and provide educational opportunities across Central Scotland. Our principle activity is to manage CastleSound – a volunteer-run, participatory radio station, broadcasting on the internet from our base in the centre of Stirling.

CastleSound is a participatory radio station. We pride ourselves in providing easily
accessed facilities at the heart of the community. We encourage people to come to where we broadcast, watch our presenters in action and take part in our broadcasts whenever possible. We recently relocated our studios to the Made in Stirling Centre. Operated by Creative Stirling CIC, MIS is an award-winning creative and retail space for local artists and craftspeople.

Young Person's Guarantee

Stirling Community Media is proud to commit to the Young Person’s Guarantee and join employers across Scotland in creating opportunities for young people.

The Young Person’s Guarantee is a joint commitment to provide opportunities for all 16-24 year olds in Scotland through jobs, apprenticeships, further and higher education, training programmes and volunteering.

Stirling Community Media provides opportunities for young people through the provision of its ‘Media Matters’ programme for young people as well as providing volunteering opportunities as radio show presenters. If you would like to know more please het in touch via our Contact Us page.
