Unlocking the potential of independent publishers
Following the recommendations of the Independent Publishers Taskforce, the Public Interest News Foundation (PINF) was launched in November 2019.
The trustees of PINF have experience in different aspects of the media and civil society. They are supported by a small start-up team, which will grow as PINF raises the funds it needs. IMPRESS is supporting PINF in this start-up period, but the two organisations are constitutionally separate.
PINF is now working in partnership with colleagues in the UK and around the world to understand the unique contribution that independent news providers make to society. We will use this research to design and deliver programmes that build the capacity of independent news providers and improve public understanding of their work.
