"2RPH embraces the social model approach to disability i.e. which seeks to achieve full participation, equity, and fair treatment by changes to society, rather than through an individual, medical approach."
"Radio 2RPH acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which our station is located, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, as well as the Traditional Owners of the lands across which we broadcast. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners and volunteers."
