We issue a weekly local talking newspaper to Harrogate, Ripon, Boroughbridge, Wetherby, Pateley Bridge and the local Yorkshire Dales. Our production is on mp3 memory sticks and we provide a player free of charge.  Our weekly issue of newspapers is about 175. Following each newspaper there is the opportunity to listen to Infosound advice and news.

In addition, we issue a monthly magazine on mp3 memory sticks and also an ongoing cassette library service with about 1000 titles, the listener providing their own cassette player.

We work closely with the Harrogate and District Vision Support Centre, reading their announcements.  Part of our newspaper production is copied and sent to our local Hospital Radio Service.

Our funding is mainly through the sales of Christmas cards, the profits of which are shared with our local Visual Support Centre. Other funding is via bequests and donations.

All our services are provided free of charge.
