Our impact

How your support made a difference in 2021/22

Our purpose is to promote press freedom and access to liberal journalism across the world. Here's how our work made an impact in 2022. To find out more, read our full impact report.
Resources
We have developed our resources to open up the world of news and help children critically evaluate what they see online.
54,491
resources for primary aged children were downloaded.
Workshops
We continue to deliver workshops and training to teachers, children, families and media professionals. This year, we adapted our media literacy resources and workshops to support young people with special educational needs.
Nearly
7,600
people took part in our workshops and activities
[Pupils] navigated the resources independently and their comments during and after the lesson indicated that they understood fundamental learning points such as checking the sources of stories, misinformation and fact and opinion.

Bursaries & work experience
We welcomed three new bursary students, Sammy Gecsoyler, Safi Bugel and Mabel Banfield-Nwachi. Their work experience placements helped them build on skills gained from their MA, as well as contributing quality journalism on topics such as representation of Muslim people on British TV, the climate crisis, strikes, work culture and more.

Our 2020/21 students, Hibaq Farah, Weronika Strzyżyńska and Georgina Quach graduated and went on to a contract at the Guardian, securing the qualification, experience and networks to pursue their careers in journalism.
139
Guardian articles were written by our bursary students on their work placements, including 3 front pages!
Reaching more people
Our hybrid approach to workshops has meant we've extended our reach and have been able to work more closely with adults and children in areas most in need across the UK. Meanwhile, we have been working towards our aim of reaching more countries in the next 5 years. Through project grants, training and hosting in a variety of different regions of Turkey, we are ensuring that people with different perspectives have the resources and skills to produce quality journalism.
Making the history of journalism accessible
By collecting, managing and sharing the records which capture the rich heritage of the Guardian and the Observer, we ensure that the stories and the processes behind the creation of news are accurately accessible - and interesting - to as many people as possible, including those working in the newsroom today.
More than 250 items from our Archive were displayed at external exhibitions, making the history of the Guardian and Observer available to

What people say
These programmes make a massive
difference to the cultural and intellectual capital of these young people.

Teacher, Exhall Grange school
I feel like I can now read a news story and know that I can trust that it is true.
Primary school pupil
Breaking into the industry as a queer, disabled woman of colour from a state school background often feels impossible [...] this scheme makes pursuing my goals, and facilitating change, seem much more attainable.
