The Bureau Local is a unique national hub for journalists and technologists to work together to find and tell stories that matter in local communities.
Our network includes journalists, technologists, community-minded citizens and specialist contributors who care about local accountability, transparency and public interest journalism.
Involve yourself as little or as much as you’d like
Follow our work, contribute an idea, skill or resource or come along to a meetup or hackday to find and tell stories with journalists and others in the network.
