Democratising News & Independent Media
The Independent Media Association, formerly known as The Media Fund, operates as a cooperative, dedicated to promoting the work of independent media. I.e. media which is free from corporate and political control.
The UK media is dominated by organisations which are owned by a small number of billionaires or run by the government, adversely affecting the prospects for a genuinely free and democratic news sector.
The Independent Media Association supports news organisations that are run in the public interest. We support financially independent and factually accurate sources of information.
