Welcome to the Journalists’ Charity

Helping journalists since 1864, The Journalists’ Charity distributes grants and other forms of financial assistance to those in urgent need. In 2018, it will pay out between £400,000 and £500,000 in more than 140 cases, with beneficiaries’ ages ranging from those in their 20s to those in their 90s.

No two cases are the same, no reasons are the same, no needs are the same. What they all have in common is that there is no-one else they can turn to for support. The Journalists’ Charity was founded by Charles Dickens and others in 1864. It is still run for journalists by journalists, who are all too aware of the pressures facing those working in the media in the 21st century. It supports professional journalists and their dependants from newspapers and magazines, television, radio and on-line.

“The charity saved my home and, quite probably, my life as well.”

“It’s not just the funds, but also the moral support and the confirmation that there is hope – and people like you who are willing to help people like me in desperate and dire times.”
