Independent, investigative, in the public interest
Exeter Observer is a new kind of independent news organisation that helps people participate more effectively in local democracy while fostering our city’s cultural and community life.
We publish news, features and investigative journalism which holds wealth, power and the influence of individuals and institutions to account while keeping people who live or work in Exeter informed of what’s being done in their name, by whom, with the assets they own and the taxes they pay.
We aim to increase understanding of complex issues, make pertinent information more accessible and stimulate more inclusive and better-informed debate. We also aim to amplify local voices, support Exeter’s arts and culture scene and help its civil society to thrive.
Exeter Observer is regulated, accountable and upholds high editorial standards. We never publish advertorial, clickbait or party political broadcasts and our non-profit business model respects your privacy while protecting the public sphere.
