The Rooftop is here to provide a dose of positive news everyday.
Focusing on stories the mainstream media either don’t have time or don’t want to report, we cover issues that matter and campaigns that make a difference.
Our aim is to help charities and campaigners connect with the general public and get their positive stories heard in what is often a negative mainstream media climate.
The Rooftop is funded by social enterprise Campaign Collective. Simon Francis, Founder Member of Campaign Collective, said:
“One of the biggest challenges that we as campaigners face in trying to create a better society is getting our voices heard.
“Let’s face it, existing media outlets are either reluctant to cover this kind of news or just don’t have the space. This means positive stories don’t get noticed and the public don’t hear about the amazing work of campaigners.
“The Rooftop is here to change that. Unashamedly upbeat, this new and innovate media outlet will celebrate the best of campaigners’ achievements and promote them directly to the public online and via our Facebook page and group.”
The Rooftop soft-launched at the Social Enterprise World Forum in Edinburgh on 14 September. Campaigners can submit their ‘news worth shouting about’ (all of which must have an accompanying quality picture) to editor [at] therooftop [dot] news.
