The Printing Charity partners with Rory Peck Trust

The UK charity will provide funding for eight safety training bursaries, specifically for UK freelancers.

The Rory Peck Trust today announced The Printing Charity as a new partner. Thanks to their support, the Trust will provide eight safety training bursaries to UK freelancers who work in print or online as journalists or photographers. The bursaries will be distributed through the Rory Peck Training Fund, which was established in 2000 to make essential hostile environment training affordable for freelance journalists. Since its establishment, the Fund has provided hundreds of bursaries to freelancers around the world.

Set up in 1827, The Printing Charity is dedicated to helping people who work or have worked for three years in printing, publishing, graphic arts and print related trades, as well as their families. Regular financial assistance, financial grants to pay for things like independent living and training, as well as two sheltered homes for retired printers are just some of the ways The Printing Charity helps people of all ages.

Tina Carr, director of the Rory Peck Trust, said, “We are delighted to welcome our new partner, The Printing Charity, a highly respected UK organisation with substantial history and news industry knowledge, and one which shares our commitment to the welfare of individuals connected with that industry. We very much look forward to working with them.”

Stephen Gilbert, Chief Executive of The Printing Charity, said: “Funding these safety training bursaries for UK freelancers is a natural fit with our work supporting people involved in the creation of words and images. We look forward to developing this scheme with the Rory Peck Trust.”
