Impact of Your Contribution:

Your donation will support the work of the Rory Peck Trust. We provide direct help to freelancers and their families in critical need around the world. Our help covers medical or relocation costs and basic subsistence, including rent, food and education. We aim to ensure freelancers' safety and enable them to return to work.
"Freelancers are crucial to today's media. They often report from dangerous parts of the world, where they become targets and can suffer harsh long term consequences. For twenty years now, the Trust - working with limited resources - has been the only organisation to whom they can turn for help. It is a small organisation with huge responsibility and global reach. With the number of requests rising, meeting this demand requires more resources and stable long-term funding. That's what the new Patrons Scheme - which I am proud to support - will help to do."

- Lord Black of Brentwood
