Welcome to Global Goodness!

Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity that helps change young lives.

Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity that helps change young lives. As home to 8 of the best loved commercial radio stations in the UK, we unite our listeners, our customers and our friends in the music and entertainment industry to raise money for disadvantaged children and young people.

All across the UK there are small but brilliant projects supporting youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity, in their local communities. These small projects find it hard to get heard, so, we give them a voice across our brands and platforms, and raise money for their incredible work.

We have a big impact on small projects, and we help small projects have a big impact.

40 Years of Helping Young Lives

Make Some Noise is the newest chapter in Global’s long history of uniting its listeners and clients to help improve the lives of children and young people.

Our Heritage

For almost 40 years we've been raising money through Help a Capital Child, Have a Heart and the Classic FM Foundation. In that time we have raised £35 million and helped 3 million children and their families.

Now we’re delighted to be uniting all our stations and listeners behind Make Some Noise to raise even more money for those who need it most.

Make Some Noise is just one of the initiatives we run to help disadvantaged youngsters. The Big Music Project and Music Potential are also part of the Global family.

Music Potential

Capital XTRA's Music Potential engages 16-24 year olds, who are not in education, employment or training, through a range of music related educational activities, work experience and mentoring using the hook of urban music.

The Global Academy UTC will also provide specialist vocational training modules leading to specific qualifications in creative, technical and digital media as well as entrepreneurship. The curriculum will have a strong focus on the technical skills needed to get a job in today's digital broadcast industry.
