Save Local Independent News: write to your MP today

Local independent news providers are the most trusted source of news in the media. However, over 95 per cent of them have received zero support from the Government since the start of the Lockdown.

While £35m has been allocated to the ‘newspaper industry’ in order to save lives by providing essential information to the public, and support the press, this money is not reaching the local independent news sector.  

If you value your local independent paper or news website and rely on it for accurate, essential, and up-to-date information about the Coronavirus pandemic, fill in your postcode below to write to your MP now.
