As a Charity, all the money for running costs, and indeed for installing Listening Units, has to be raised through donations, fundraising projects and grants. No-one at Life Care Radio gets paid so our volunteers can often be found hosting coffee and bake sales, holding collecting buckets and taking part in local events such as Paignton Festival and Torbay Carnival.
As part of their work, they are also available to support with garden parties and fetes at the residential and nursing homes that they broadcast to – this keeps them in touch with their listeners and can help to provide music and basic public address systems to lend atmosphere.

Life Care Radio would also like to thank a range of local organisations who work with us to maintain this aim including:
