The Carnegie UK Trust is supporting five local news organisations with £10,000 to deliver community news in new and innovative ways through its Neighbourhood News project in 2013-14. The Trust’s new interim evaluation policy summary showcases the highlights and challenges experienced by the five Carnegie Partners during the start-up phase of their projects. The summary also raises a number of questions for discussion on the role of large foundations, charities and grant makers in supporting local news providers, government interventions in the local news market, and the best strategy for supporting start-up local news projects.
