Community Journalism

What is community journalism?

Our Volunteers work on our community newsletter.  They organise interviews with locals, edit the transcript, design the newsletter, take pictures and deliver the newsletter to neighbours. We are also keen to see a community website, radio, podcast or youtube channel so if your motivations are aligned to community journalism, we would like to hear from you!!

What are we looking for?

We welcome all volunteers interested in community journalism.  Come and find out what’s going on, then you can take the initiative and find the best way to contribute.

What would you gain?

This is a great project offering hands-on experience of a community organisation in a diverse community and a chance to develop a wide range of communication skills.  We also offer peer support and Listening Training to enhance your CV and we’re happy to provide a reference after you have volunteered with us for 6 months.
