The Right have deep pockets to steer the debate in Britain. Now's your chance to turn the tide. Together, we can build a better media.

New stretch target

If we raise £15,000, we will be able to:

  • Find and pay for exclusive stories that expose wrongdoing and hypocrisy 
  • Fund monthly polling to put progressive issues at the top of the news agenda

If we raise £20,000, we will be able to: 

  • Hire regular columnists and experts to cover climate change, trade union activism and anti-racist organising
  • Begin long-term investigations into the world of right-wing think tanks and hardcore Brexiteers
  • Redesign the site to step our work up a gear and reach even more people
  • Cover even more events, protests and exclusive stories, and explore setting up a video team to level up our work

If we raise more, you'll put progressive media on a sustainable path - allowing us to take on more writers and change the debate. 


UPDATE (11th March): We're so close to reaching our target - so we're proud to launch the first of our 'Stretch Goals' - what we could do if we smashed past the £10,000 mark.

If we raise £15,000, we will be able to:

  • Find and pay for exclusive stories that expose wrongdoing and hypocrisy 
  • Fund regular polling to put progressive issues at the top of the news agenda

UPDATE (1st March): All donations will now be DOUBLED thanks to support from Betterworld - but only if we reach our £10,000 target.

----------

Ten years ago, Left Foot Forward, the home for independent, progressive journalism, was born. Since then, more than 1,200 contributors (and growing) have built a platform for hard-hitting, evidence-based analysis of British politics.


We've reached millions of people with our stories. Over the past couple of years alone we've:

We can’t keep doing this without raising £10,000. The truth is, running a progressive media outlet is hard to sustain. 

We aren’t backed by powerful figures like Rupert Murdoch. What keeps us going is our readers and contributors. We urgently need to raise £10,000 or we won’t be able to keep our fight for a better media alive. 

Please donate £10 or £20 today to support another 10 years of independent journalism. 

Your support will mean we can:

  • Keep reporting from the frontlines of campaigning 
  • Maintain Left Foot Forward as a platform of open, progressive debate
  • Hold the right’s feet to the fire through fresh commentary and analysis
  • Keep paying our small team a living wage and continue to grow

We want to be ambitious - to not just keep LFF going as a leading news and comment site, but to become a force to be reckoned with. 


Help us build a better media. Together, we can do this.
