Coping with Covid-19: Your messages of support for journalism

22 May, 2020

The last couple of months have perhaps been the most challenging in the history of British journalism. For many journalists, the Covid-19 outbreak had an immediate impact as their work stopped and income dried up overnight. Throughout the crisis, the Journalists’ Charity has been providing help, advice, and emergency assistance to journalists from all sectors, nationwide. We’ve been buoyed by many generous donations and messages from our incredible supporters, and we wanted to share a selection with you.
