The Public Interest News Foundation (PINF) is the first charity in the UK with a mandate to
promote public interest news.
About our organisation/network
We want to see a vibrant and diverse public interest news sector, with high-quality journalism that speaks to and for every community in the UK. We work particularly closely with independent news publishers, including local newspapers and websites, specialist publications and investigative non-profits.
Our main line of work
We are piloting a News Transformation Programme, through which we will create opportunities for people with lived experience of severe and multiple disadvantage to edit independent news publications. This project will lead to new and important journalism; and to new models of engagement between journalists and people experiencing severe and multiple disadvantage.
The change we want to see
We want to see new opportunities for people with lived experience of severe and multiple disadvantage to engage with the news media, not simply as the subjects of news stories, but as co-creators of the news.
