Social Impact / Better Bristol

Where does your membership contribution go?

By hannah cornford, Thursday Jul 9, 2020

Media has changed as content has become largely free to access on the internet. This has been fantastic for opening up a platform to those who may not otherwise be able to access it.

Openness and freedom are what we believe in and we are determined not to put any of our content behind a pay wall. As an independent media organisation we do not operate under a large corporation and we care about the community we operate in.

Bristol24/7 provides a voice to people from across the city. We work for you – the people of Bristol – to support community projects that have a positive impact on the people and places of Bristol and make it a better place to be. You can see how we’re doing this through our Better Bristol initiative here.

Yet the changing landscape means that funding independent journalism and community projects is harder than ever. The support of our members goes directly towards delivering our independent journalism and supporting projects that make a direct difference to people’s lives in the city.

Members of our business network Studio Giggle made us this short animation to help explain why Bristol24/7 needs its members.

Collaboration is the key to our approach and our friends across the city offer exclusive perks and experiences to our members to give something back.

For everyone who has joined us so far – thank you. For those who are still on the fence, why not try it for a month – it’s just £5 and you can cancel any time.
