Partner with Impress

As a part of Impress' current regulatory membership scheme, our publishers enjoy several benefits including protection from legal costs, standards advice, membership resources and affordable fees.

We are looking to partner with like-minded organisations to expand our membership offerings by providing our publishers with an array of industry relevant services to enable them to build a brand based on high journalistic standards, accountability, and public trust.

Through our partnerships we hope to create an environment of growth, learning and positive change in the sector that facilitates responsible, factual and considered journalism. We are keen to hear from potential partners who see value in this approach.
