New Frame is a not-for-profit, social justice publication.

We are dedicated to a pro-poor, pro-working class focus that aims to report faithfully and informatively about the lives and struggles of ordinary people.

We aim to produce well-written and well-illustrated journalism that is accessible and jargon free. We are committed to careful and factually accurate reporting, and to working with people of integrity. We do not publish people with a record of public dishonesty or use them as experts or commentators. We are chasing quality, not clicks.

New Frame is editorially independent and all editorial decisions are made by the editors in conjunction with our reporters and photographers.

We have a network of freelance writers and photographers as well as a core team. That core team is made up of the people pictured here.
