Join the network

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. 


Share story ideas and challenges, work with us on investigations and get the data to tell your stories.

Not a reporter or blogger but want to be involved? 

We also work with 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.

Join us.
