Our data promise

The organisation will use the information that we collect about you in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003.
Who are we?
Chatterbox Norwich Talking Newspaper, is a charity which produces and distributes weekly to approximately 400 blind and partially sighted listeners. The 60 to 90 minute audio recording contains items of local news taken from the Evening News and the Eastern Daily Press newspapers, and is supplied on a USB memory stick. The service is entirely free and delivered both ways, without charge, by Royal Mail. Where listeners are unable to provide their own means of playing the recording, the Organisation supply, on free loan, a USB memory stick player.
In addition to local news, there are general interest features. Listeners also receive a monthly recording of a selection of features from EDP Norfolk Magazine, recordings from Let’s Talk Magazine, a quarterly magazine recording of Chataround and at Christmas, an additional seasonal recording.
We are very lucky to have the support of Archant, BBC Radio Norfolk, BBC and Anglia TV.
The quality of the Chatterbox recordings is monitored by the Listeners Panel, a group of blind and / or partially sighted listeners based at the NNAB. They feed back to us on a regular basis what they like about the recordings and how things could be improved.
