Rory Peck Trust

The Rory Peck Trust is the only organisation dedicated to providing practical and financial support to freelance journalists worldwide, assisting them in times of crisis and helping them to work more safely and professionally.

Formed in 1995, the Trust provides assistance grants to freelancers and their families in crisis and is a source of information, advice and resources on issues including risk assessment, safety, insurance, trauma counselling and professional development.

The Trust also provides safety training bursaries to freelancers planning to work in hostile environments, and collaborates on special initiatives tailored to the needs of freelancers working in specific regions and situations.

The Rory Peck Awards, held annually in London, uniquely celebrate the work of freelance cameramen and women working in news and current affairs worldwide.
