Help make Scotland better
Scotland experienced a democratic surge in the run up to the Scottish independence referendum in 2014 which prompted a type of politics and engagement that has continued since.
But it highlighted a big problem in Scotland: the weaknesses in our media. As in other places, Scotland's media has been in steep decline for years, and while Scotland's powers have increased since devolution in 1999 the media has been further squeezed. This is dangerous for the people of Scotland: it threatens their ability to build and sustain a fair society, and it's not good enough. We deserve better - all of us.
We've created a strong, vibrant media free from advertising and corporate influence. We're not here to make huge profits, we just want to be sustainable. We're not held to ransom by media moguls who own vast swathes of global media, we're independent and we keep our readers at the heart of everything we do.
We are funded by the Common Weal, which is funded entirely by grassroots support. We are completely editorially independent, and we've already made a big impact on the media scene in Scotland.
Be part of a Scottish media revolution. Support us today, and help build the Scotland you want to live in.
