Join the network

The Bureau Local is a unique network of people working together to find and tell stories that matter to communities across the UK.

It 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.
