Weʼre raising £800 to Help THE LOBBYIST Make News Engaging

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The mainstream media currently exists in an echo chamber where you have journalists talking to journalists and adults talking to adults; no adequate consideration and reflection of the views of young people. How do I know that? Because I am one of the disenfranchised youths. That is why I set up The Lobbyist; to use the news and current affairs to lobby the case of young people and with thought provoking content to generate an informed debate amongst young people and the wider public: We started small but in 7 months alone we've already reached 900 subscribers but we know we can do better. We want to start filming and uploading our interviews, we want to have professional sounding podcasts, a vibrant social media presence...we want to make something that young people can truly engage with. We want to make news fun again...Help us, make the news exciting
