The Ferret is built upon a growing group of hundreds of subscribers and small donors to keep it going. If you're one of them - thanks!
We also supplement this income with money from grant giving bodies, event fees, and selling stories to other media organisations.
We have launched stories in partnership with a range of other media organisations including The Sunday Herald, The Guardian, The Daily Record, The Times and The National.
Our site carries no advertising, and we do not accept funding from any organisation that seeks to influence our editorial.
The Ferret is grateful to the following organisations for providing funding or in-kind support to The Ferret, since we launched:
We do consult with our members from time to time on the editorial priorities we should pursue.
We share financial information with our subscribers in regular transparency reports, and as a registered co-operative, The Ferret is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
