My Community News Project experience: Ollie Kemp

"What was most unexpected was how many communities surround us that we simply do not think about. There are people from all walks of life crying out for their voices to be heard - all they want is to be listened to and understood."

My Community News Project experience: Natasha Meek

"I believe my role as a Facebook community reporter allowed me to actively make sure every voice was heard and cover previously undocumented topics through the level of trust I had gradually built with my contacts."

My Community News Project experience: Gurjeet Nanrah

"Being a community reporter has been more than an ideal role to begin life as a journalist. It’s helped me identify the types of stories I enjoy reporting on and led to my new job as a life writer across Lincolnshire Live, Derbyshire Live, and Nottinghamshire Live."
