About the organisation
2RPH operates as a charity and is a not-for-profit, independent community radio station which provides a reading and information service for people who have limited access to published material. The station’s programming provides listeners access to a variety of printed publications and material covering a wide range of topics. 2RPH forms part of the Australian network of print radio in every state in Australia and is a member of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia.

In 2021 we will be expanding our broadcast coverage; seeking new premises and looking to further review program content. We have a small team of paid staff and around 200 active volunteers, offering radio-reading services to over 10% of the population who have difficulty accessing published material. We currently broadcast to Sydney and Newcastle, with transmission to Wollongong to be added in 2021.
