How your donation helps.
The Trust provides practical support to freelance journalists and their families in crisis, including direct financial assistance and access to support and training to help them work safely and professionally. Freelancers may be reporting from conflict zones, on human rights atrocities, environmental investigations, or exposing government corruption. They may be reporting on everyday issues that seriously affect their local communities. Almost always working alone, they are vulnerable. We provide a platform for freelance journalists’ voices.
We are independent and non-political.
