Bridging the gap

The lack of diversity in UK media has been a persistent issue, and that's why we are here to help.

Established journalists and media professionals are a key support for students as trusted reference points. You have the power to make a real difference by signing up to PressPad, giving them a real shot at joining the industry.

Who do we help?



By providing access to your spare room to interns who need it, you are widening the pool of opportunities for young people, and making their career move possible.


Not only will you be helping to diversify the media, you will also be providing interns with a safe and comfortable place to stay during their internship, and a gain a mentor for life (we hope!).
