Five hyperlocal news websites have received £10,000 each as part of a new funding project. The Port Talbot Magnet in South Wales, Your Thurrock in Essex, the Brixton Blog in London, Whale Arts in Edinburgh, and Cybermoor in Cumbria, each received the grant from the Carnegie Trust. They were chosen from nearly 80 applicants across the UK and Ireland to become a Carnegie Partner in the ‘Neighbourhood News’ initiative. In exchange for £10,000, the organisations are required to be externally evaluated so that others can learn from their models.
