Who we are.
The Rory Peck Trust provides practical and financial support to freelance journalists and their families worldwide, assisting them in crisis and helping them continue their work safely and professionally.
Freelancers play a vital role in independent newsgathering but are often the most vulnerable when things go wrong. Through its work supporting freelance journalists globally, the Rory Peck Trust helps to safeguard and strengthen independent journalism as it comes under increasing attack.
Four of this year’s Rory Peck Awards finalists will be on Channel 4 this week in a series of short films exploring the motivations and incredible stories behind their work.
A guest post written by Professor Jackie Harrison, head of the Journalism Studies Department at the University of Sheffield, about impunity and its assault on journalists, the public and the foundations of free and independent journalism.
