About us / Who we are
Our mission

Publish with integrity

Impress is a champion for news that can be trusted.

New forms of media are continually coming to the fore and across the board there is a problem: public trust in the news sits at a historic low. At Impress, we’re committed to changing this. We work to ensure that our members can publish with integrity; so that the public can engage with confidence in an ever-changing media landscape.

We’re a dynamic organisation that is passionate about increasing transparency in the sector through education, and promoting good journalism across print, digital and social channels. Above all, we want the media to thrive.
