A collaboration between the University of Sussex and Miranda Birch Media, is giving local charities the opportunity to promote themselves and students the chance to exercise their media skills.
The “Untold Stories” project is funded by the University’s School of Media, Film & Music. MA students interview charity volunteers and those they support and turn their first-hand accounts into audio podcasts.
Through these interviews, the charities get a taste of working with the media, the students gain practical experience and both can use the podcast to promote what they do to potential volunteers, funding bodies or employers.
Fun in Action for Children
is one of the charities taking part. It provides one-to-one befriending support to children aged between four and sixteen, growing up in lone parent families in Brighton and Hove. The adult “befriender” commits to spending three to four hours every week with the child for a minimum of two years.
Brighton based Sussex Nightstop
supporting young homeless people is the second charity taking part.
Miranda Birch, is working with the University to supervise the project using her interviewing skills to identify human interest stories within different organisations
You can listen to the charities’ “Untold Stories” on the University's website at
