The Journalists’ Charity works alongside a range of organisations which share our passion for journalism and the future of the industry.
The Journalism Diversity Fund
The Journalism Diversity Fund awards bursaries to people from diverse backgrounds who need help funding their NCTJ journalism training. Bursaries are awarded four times per year and can help cover the costs of NCTJ course fees and/or living expenses. Recipients will also be paired with a working journalist to mentor them throughout their studies.
Supported by those in the industry who want to make newsrooms better reflect the communities they serve, applications are open to individuals with the potential to succeed in one of the most exciting and rewarding careers around.

Tortoise: What’s different about us is slow news. We don’t do breaking news, but what’s driving the news. We don’t cover every story, but reveal a few. We take the time to see the fuller picture, to make sense of the forces shaping our future, to investigate what’s unseen.
We’re not going to cover press conferences. We’re not racing after breaking news. We’re not going to recreate the old structures in newsrooms: political editors, economics editors, etc.
We will, though, make commitments to you. We’ll show you our workings. We’ll let you know when we’ve fallen short. We’ll front up when we’ve campaigned hard but got nowhere. We will see stories through. Don’t be surprised if you find a moral at the end. We don’t just report on stories; we take an interest in them. We care what happens next.
John Schofield Trust
The John Schofield Trust is working hard to improve social mobility in UK broadcast newsrooms through its mentoring schemes for early career and apprentice journalists and its e-mentoring scheme for Year 12 and 13 students considering a career in journalism. The under-representation of those from disadvantaged backgrounds is a particular problem within journalism.
The John Schofield Trust believes this urgently needs to change so that the news stories that are told truly reflect our society; that young people who may never have considered journalism as a career for them can champion the diverse stories they have lived.

Freelancing for Journalists
Independent Media Association
The Independent Media Association, formerly known as The Media Fund, operates as a cooperative, dedicated to promoting the work of independent media. I.e. media which is free from corporate and political control.
The UK media is dominated by organisations which are owned by a small number of billionaires or run by the government, adversely affecting the prospects for a genuinely free and democratic news sector.
The Independent Media Association supports news organisations that are run in the public interest. They support financially independent and factually accurate sources of information.
