Enfield Dispatch is the borough’s free community newspaper. We offer a platform for local people to highlight what matters to them. The Dispatch is a not-for-profit paper funded by advertising and membership.
Enfield Dispatch is one of more than 800 media outlets that have been granted access to news content generated by the BBC Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS).
Launched in 2017, the LDRS has created up to 150 new journalism jobs to help fill a gap in the reporting of local democracy issues across the UK.
The purpose of LDRS is to provide impartial coverage of the regular business and workings of local authorities in the UK, and other relevant democratic institutions. The brief of LDRS reporters is to report on the decision-making process; what decisions are made in the public’s name, how they are arrived at, and what evidence is presented to the council.
