Behind community news: Help shape the future of West Leeds Dispatch

west leeds dispatch page 1

Ever wondered how an independent community media outlet like West Leeds Dispatch operates? In the third of a series of regular posts, editor JOHN BARON appeals to readers to help shape our future.

What does West Leeds Dispatch do well and what could we do better?

In previous weeks I’ve talked about how WLD is community led, with a volunteer board made up of community members and our team of community reporters. It’s powered by people

This week feels like a new start. The easing of lockdown, more places reopening, and the chance for a much-needed change of scenery. It’s an opportunity to look at things afresh.

So here’s the chance for you, our readers, to have your say on independent, community-led journalism in West Leeds!

For me good journalism is about being held accountable. It’s about partnerships with local groups and organisations, and also with our readers. We want to ensure WLD is run, written and shaped by people in West Leeds and truly reflects our local community.

In a few weeks – around our sixth birthday – we’re looking to make a big and hugely exciting announcement about our future plans. Please help us shape our future print and online offering by taking four minutes of your time to complete our survey and provide us with useful feedback. We promise to report back on our findings!

Please take the survey here.

Thank you.
