We know that money is currently tight for many out there, so as requested we have introduced a new basic tier which will allow more people to contribute.

For less than the cost of a pint or cappuccino (in Cardiff) per month, you could help bring a National Newspaper to Cymru.

About

We're developing a brand new independent National media service for Wales. Print, digital, video and audio. 

It's incredible to think that in 2020 Wales doesn't have a national independent news service. One that looks at the news from a Welsh perspective, one that supports devolution and one that will hold our government to account.

We were originally looking to launch digitally in September 2020 with a weekly print edition pilot running for 5 months from January 2021 through to the end of May 2021, taking in the Welsh General Election on the 6th of May 2021.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed everything. The need for a new independent, truly national, news and media service for Wales has never been greater. I along with our strategic media partners have looked at the feasibility of launching sooner, we are now in a position to launch within weeks. We need to ensure sufficient funding for the first 12 months which will enable us to employ the 4 additional journalists required for launch. 

Our business model requires an element of subscription, it's vital from a sustainability perspective, and is particularly vital during our first twelve months as we develop other revenue streams. We need to attract a minimum of 500 subscribers in order to launch.

We need to build support for our venture, without you, our audience, we are nothing. This venture is being developed to ensure that Wales has the strong independent media it requires and deserves.

Help us to make this a reality.

Diolch
