2RPH is the only community radio station based in New South Wales that is dedicated to the needs of those living with a print disability.

Our unique listener base makes us an ideal sponsorship partner for disability service providers, assistive technology businesses, as well as products and services aimed at seniors.

You can sponsor a range of programs, partner with us through our unique Corporate Volunteering Program or promote your business on air. 

Sponsorship

2RPH offers varying levels of sponsorship, ranging from specific program sponsorship to station sponsorship. Sponsorship enhances your business by promoting your products and services to thousands of weekly listeners.

General sponsorship packages start with 30-second messages played daily during our live and pre-recorded shifts.

2RPH also develops features and unique content on topics of interest driven by audience, editorial and consumer needs, such as the program ‘Ablequest’, which showcases assistive technology and initiatives enabling people with disabilities to live a full and independent life.

We are flexible and accommodating to our sponsors’ needs. If you have any questions, please get in touch!
