Get Help

If you face legal threats because of your journalism, we can help


We support journalists – including citizen journalists, bloggers, broadcasters, photojournalists, cartoonists or fact-checkers – and news outlets when they are confronted with legal action as a result of their reporting.



We fund local legal centres to provide free legal support to journalists in their country


We combine financial assistance with practical support to organisations that either have, or wish to establish, a legal aid unit to provide free, high-quality legal support to journalists, citizen journalists, and media outlets facing legal threats because of their reporting.
