Supported by

Content labelled as ‘supported by’ describes content that is editorially independent. It also describes content that we have accepted funding from third parties to produce that content. Before funding is agreed on for reporting on a particular project or topic that the client is interested in senior co-editors at The Meteor discuss whether the project is suitable to be reported on in The Meteor. There are two senior co-editors, who together can be considered the editor-in-chief.

Consensus is required between the co-editors for the clients project to be accepted. The branding of a client that appears on editorial content means that the client may suggest what kind of topics are reported on, but the editor commissioning the content does not have to accept ideas from the client.

The supported content is produced by Meteor journalists, or those approved by The Meteor, to the same standards we apply to all our journalism. Copy will not be shown to funders, by The Meteor, for approval. Supported content topics in The Meteor are listed below:

Urban Insights

The Meteor has received funding, on a per article basis, from the Realising Just Cities project at the Urban Institute of the University of Sheffield to report on all aspects of urban development in Greater Manchester. The projects aim is to shine a light on the political, economic and social aspects of urban life and development across the region. We hope our reports will provide some insight on how we can live better in an urban environment.

Unless otherwise stated all statements and materials published in Urban Insights supported content articles reflects the views of the individual contributors and not those of the Realising Just Cities project at the Urban Institute of the University of Sheffield.

 

Housing Crisis

The Meteor has received funding, on a per article basis, to report on all aspects of the housing crisis in Greater Manchester, by Greater Manchester Housing Action a grassroots campaign group battling for tenants and residents rights. The projects aim is to shine a light on the political, economic and social reasons that underpin the myriad aspects that make up the housing crisis. To enable people to understand how this crisis has come about and point towards possible solutions.

This project fits well with The Meteor’s previous extensive reporting on housing and homelessness issues and it also matches our aim of reporting on social justice issues within the city.
