No barons or hedgefunds

The Bristol Cable is owned and powered by 2,000 local members, which enables us to publish stories that matter to the public, not big business.

Public interest journalism is expensive, takes time and can be risky.

But powering Bristol’s media co-op isn’t.

Revealed: NHS staff in Bristol are being worked until they’re sick with stress

In the 70th year of the NHS, an investigation by the Cable reveals that those who care for the nation are in need of serious attention.

We’re launching a campaign to stop the council setting bailiffs on Bristolians. Here’s why.
