Foster a more connected Peterborough. Support our work.
The team at Peterborough Currents works hard to create journalism that deepens your understanding of the issues facing Peterborough. To do that, we have to be able to keep our journalism paywall-free for everyone. We ask our community to voluntarily show its financial support for the quality journalism we strive to produce. We choose to be powered by Peterborough because you—our readers—are at the centre of it all.
A message from Ayesha Barmania and Will Pearson, Peterborough Currents co-publishers
Our aim is to connect you to your city and community through journalism that puts the people most impacted first. We rely on readers contributing financially so we can produce independent local news.
Reader support means we’re accountable to ourselves and to our audience – not accountable to advertisers. And it means we don’t need to chase clicks with sensational headlines. Most importantly, it means we can invest our time uncovering stories.
We’re committed to telling stories that deepen our understanding of the community we love. We’d love for you to join us.
