What our members say

Tabitha StapelyFounder and Director,Social Streets CIC

The best thing about Impress is the peace of mind it brings. Editors have to juggle a lot but knowing there is reliable support and advice on hand for dealing with potential complaints is a weight off my mind. This has given us the confidence to publish deeper investigative articles.”

Dr Rob WatsonEditor, Leicester Stories

The value of Impress membership for me is trust. Community media empowers people who are otherwise overlooked or marginalised to raise their voices. To do this we need to ensure that we are accountable, transparent, and guided by clear ethical principles. Regulation in partnership with Impress helps us to achieve this.”

Tchiyiwe Chihana Director, Opus Independents

“Impress is present and not a distant regulator. It is valuable that their engagement with members helps to advance quality journalism for independent practitioners.”
