Do you think that someone should be holding governments, politicians and big companies to account?

Should there be an informed, intelligent and transparent media that looks out for citizens’ rights and interests?

Does the control of much of the media – old and new – by a handful of unaccountable owners worry you?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you should join The Ferret.

Owned only by our writers and readers, The Ferret is an independent, not-for-profit, cooperative that reports on the truth behind the spin.

And our stories have impact. They are often followed up by other media, as well as policy makers in Holyrood, Westminster and further afield.

Since we launched in 2015 we’ve broken major environmental, human rights and surveillance stories and won multiple awards. We want to do more, but we can only do this with your help.

Join us now.
