As a not-for-profit, every penny we receive goes directly back into the newspaper.

Your support directly fuels our mission of delivering high-quality journalism to the public. With your contribution, we can make a meaningful impact and ensure the longevity of local journalism.

Why donate?

  1. Empower independent journalism: Every penny you donate goes directly back into the newspaper, enabling us to continue providing unbiased and comprehensive coverage of important stories – we need around £1,000 per year to keep the lights on.
  2. Accessibility for all: Your generous donations help us keep running our accessibility tools, AccessAngel, ensuring that everyone can stay informed and engaged with the issues that matter – this costs around £800 per year to run.
  3. Pay our team: Currently, our dedicated team volunteers their time to bring you investigative journalism. Your support can help us grow, allowing us to pay the Real Living Wage, and produce even more impactful work – we would need roughly £25,000 per year to pay for one staff member full time.
The best way to support us is by becoming a member.

With 1,000 members who contribute an average of £2.62 per month, we would have sufficient funds to support a full-time staff member and meet all operational expenses.

How can you help?

  • One-time contribution: Make a one-time donation of any amount to show your commitment to quality journalism. Every contribution makes a difference.
  • Regular contributions: Consider becoming a monthly donor. By setting up a recurring donation, you provide consistent support that allows us to plan for the future and maintain our operations effectively. The best way to support us on a monthly basis is to become a member.
