As the UK's national public service broadcaster, we have six Public Purposes which were set our for us by the Government. Everything we do at the BBC - every TV or radio show and every website or event - is designed to help us achieve one or more of these purposes.
This includes all of the work that we do beyond broadcasting, and every one of our face-to-face activities is helping us fulfil at least one of these purposes.
This face-to-face activity, which we call outreach, is designed to help us meet our audiences across the country, especially those usually considered difficult to reach through traditional broadcasting.
