The Burngreave Messenger Ltd.

Description

The Burngreave Messenger is an independent community newspaper, delivered free, six times per year (8 times per year starting 2017), to over 9000 households in the Burngreave area of Sheffield. The Messenger was first printed in 1999 and is a not-for-profit limited company, and a registered charity whose trustees are residents of the Burngreave area.

Decisions about the content of the Messenger are made collectively by volunteers in the editorial team. Volunteers are involved in writing, photography, design, editing, decision making, website management and proof reading.

The purpose of the Burngreave Messenger is to build the capacity of Burngreave residents through the production of the Messenger newspaper and website.

We aim to:

~ Increase awareness of services and opportunities available to Burngreave residents

~ Increase involvement by Burngreave residents in local groups and community activities

~ Increase confidence and pride in the Burngreave community

~ Enable greater participation in the Messenger project by Burngreave residents who might find it difficult to be involved

~ Increase the capacity of Burngreave residents to identify and address problems in their community

~ Increase understanding between different sections of the community.
