CHAOS TV is a new feel-good digital TV platform created with people’s wellbeing and potential in mind.
Hundreds of people are already tuning in to uplifting weekday online programming that is designed to support, entertain, educate and engage.
Broadcasting from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, it was set up in Cornwall by The CHAOS Group, who already run a radio station, to build a fun, thriving and encouraging online community without physical boundaries.
It is being run in conjunction with Pluss and the aim is to help people overcome barriers, build confidence and learn new skills, especially those who are not in employment – whatever the reason. This includes people who have recently lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 crisis, or are currently on furlough, and are uncertain about future prospects.
CHAOS – which stands for Community Helping All of Society – comprises of six partners, working hard to support everyone in the community. Spanning a range of industries, from hospitality, health and beauty, agriculture and social care. Together with Pluss which is a social enterprise that offers a lifeline to anyone that is out of work to build confidence, wellbeing and return to work or training.
Babs Rounsevell, Chief Executive at Chaos, explains the TV initiative, “We can truly focus our content on the community around us and the people in need that we have already been working with,” says Babs. “Basically, all the support CHAOS and Pluss would usually provide but delivered direct to screens, devices and homes”.
The station has a TV guide informing the viewers of the different time slots that week. From “The Creature Feature Show” hosted by an ex-Pluss participant, to the Community Spotlight Hour giving advice on things such as debt and cooking on a budget – there is something for everyone whether you’re looking for information or entertainment. “We want to bring CHAOS to people’s homes as they can’t come to us,” said Babs.
With the current uncertain times, anyone could benefit from watching CHAOS TV. The Pluss Community Spotlight hour is created with the intention of bringing some peace of mind. Cooking on a budget, for example, saw Pluss staff and partners offering cooking demonstrations on skype. Alongside this, giving advice and helpful tips to make money go further when it comes to feeding a family.
Each day a variety of guests are invited via Skype to pass on their knowledge, with the chance for viewers to text in their own questions.
