Hi Cathy
Thanks for your response and information about your work. I hope I will understand even more about it soon as this morning I'm taking part in social reporter training. It is with others who have undertaken an active citizenship learning programme. Many of us were part of a women only course, so I'm hoping I could link to the Women's Radio Group, if you are happy to hear from women outside Ealing. I will certainly share the link to your site. 
Many thanks
Lorna

Hi Cathy

Thanks for the friend request. I'm intrigued by what you do, can you explain it a little more to me? What does participatory media mean? I'm a bit new to some of this, so please excuse me catching up a bit :)

Hi Cathy & welcome to Our Society!

You can read a bit more about Our Society and what we hope to achieve by having a read of Our Purpose and our About Us page.

This network is in the early stages of development so we'd very much appreciate any comments or suggestions that you have. I've set up a Feedback Forum for this, so please do share your thoughts there.

As a quick way to get the ball rolling, why not read our Getting Started info, and please take a moment to tell us a bit about yourself in the "Who are you?" thread.

Thanks again for joining, please contact me if you have any problems, and do feel free to set up your own group or discussion - I'm happy to assist with either.

~ Sophie
