Our Mission

A news literate society, where our freedoms are guaranteed through the open availability of information, is essential for our future understanding of an increasingly complex world, while an appreciation of what is happening will allow us to take an active and knowledgeable role within our communities whether they be local, national or global.

The News Foundation seeks to provide opportunities for young people to access news, meet with newsmakers, discover, discuss and act upon issues of concern in current events through the development of projects, programmes and campaigns that encourage the acquisition of information, skills and experience which build confidence and skills which, together, lead to

‘a more knowledgeable, literate and understanding future society’
