Salford LIDS has been around since 1999, and was first set up to promote LETS schemes, those 'Local Exchange Trading Systems', which were popular in the 1990s. Salford didn't want one, though, and LIDS went on to work with people in local communities on other training and enterprise options. After a bit of a lull, LIDS members got together in 2006 and decided to start a whole new programme of fund-raising, moving the organisation into new media, audio at first, and then video. LIDS members also took the opportunity to join Salford City Radio when it got going full-time in late 2007. The last few years have seen a move from audio, then multimedia, then video, and all this stuff is on our website or linked to it. Follow the links and a whole world opens up.
