At the Ferret we believe collaboration with other media organisations is important.
Feedback from our members suggests that they want our stories to have reach and impact. They also want The Ferret to be a sustainable organisation for the long-term.
One way we can do this is to work with other media organisations on stories or whole projects.
For example, by working with newspapers we can get our stories into print and reach whole new audiences that may be not be aware of our online output.
By sharing information or coordinating our work with other journalists we can learn more about an issue and improve the impact of our stories.
When we work with other organisations, we sometimes charge a fee for our work, and sometimes we simply agree to work together if the arrangement is mutually beneficial.
Whatever the arrangement is, we work hard to make sure that neither our editorial, nor our financial independence is ever compromised.
Organisations that we’ve collaborated with - either by co-publishing stories, or by working together behind the scenes to share information include (in no particular order):
