A bag for every participant in Journalism Cares- thanks to Madlug

Dave Linton the founder and CEO of Madlug

The Trust is delighted to announce that Madlug is the latest organisation to support our new Journalism Cares mentoring scheme.

Journalism Cares is a new programme which gives training to care experienced people who want to get into the world of journalism.

As a result of Madlug’s support for Journalism Cares, the organisation will ensure that every participant in the mentoring programme receives a Madlug bag.

Most children and young people in care have their belongings moved in black bin bags or plastic shopping bags. Madlug is an award-winning bag brand that stands for ‘make a difference luggage’.  With every bag purchased, a pack-away travel bag goes to a child in care.

Dave Linton CEO and Founder of Madlug said

“We’re so excited to be supporting this amazing work by providing bags to the incredible care-experienced young people.  We love to see young people not limited by their past, but instead being equipped to reach their full potential in the world of journalism and beyond”.

David Stenhouse CEO of the John Schofield Trust said. “Journalists always need bags, and we are delighted that Madlug will provide a bag to every person accepted onto the Journalism Cares programme. Like the John Schofield Trust, Madlug believes in practical action to support care experienced people and we are delighted to have their support.”

Journalism Cares will launch in the summer of 2023.
