The Bureau Local is a unique national hub for people to work together to find and tell stories that matter in local communities.

Be part of our network
Journalist? 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 meet-up or hack day to find and tell stories.

Once you sign up below, you will get an email with details of how to join our newsroom on Slack. This is where we collaborate on stories - think news meeting, meets chat by the kettle, meets drinks after work - find collaborators, ask for help, flag great work!
