The Journalists’ Charity’s mission to boost awareness and engagement is moving up a gear, with the appointment of a new outreach champion.
Ellen Bramley, who previously worked at the Society of Editors, takes up the post tasked with spreading the word about the charity’s vital role.
Since the beginning of lockdown, hundreds of journalists have been awarded financial assistance – often where there was nowhere else to turn. In a dozen cases the charity’s intervention prevented journalists and their families from losing their homes.
As the industry faces continuing challenges caused by the outbreak, the charity stands ready to help journalists who find themselves struggling, whether that’s through confidential advice, financial assistance or friendly guidance via our free online sessions.
Although restrictions around Covid-19 make it harder to meet face to face, digital interaction will remain the way to engage until it becomes easier to return to the workplace. Ultimately, spreading the word about the role of the charity will mean more individuals can get assistance when they need it, helping journalists and supporting journalism at this crucial time.
If you’d like to arrange a workplace awareness session, or have any other suggestion about how the charity can spread the word, please get in touch.
