The following chapter comes from an amalgamation of empirical research, reflection on practice and a desire to find practical examples to support some of the theoretical frameworks within which we work. In this chapter we will discuss ways in which community radio can support the rehabilitation, personal development and inclusion of marginalised individuals and their (re)engagement with mainstream society. Drawing on ideas of policy and practice, we will demonstrate how radio producers and trainers can facilitate personal development, whilst reconnecting people with society in a meaningful way.
