Making change happen

The UK's largest quality digital news brand

The Independent has been at the front line of journalism since 1986, with its purpose to challenge and debate way ahead of its time.


In today’s increasingly fragmented world, communities value real facts and frank opinions delivered first-hand from a non-biased news brand that they can trust. Armed with information and inspiration, Independent readers are empowered and equipped to take a stand for the things they believe in.


As The Independent’s MD, Christian Broughton, says: “The Independent is about more than just news – it’s a value system. Our time is now.”


The first of the quality news brands to embrace a digital-only future in 2016, The Independent is a dynamic, brand-safe environment for advertisers to reach a huge, loyal audience.
