THE Yorkshire Evening Post is preparing to launch a hard-hitting new campaign giving YOU the answers YOU want about the city where YOU live.
Your Right To Know will turn the spotlight on the way taxpayers’ cash is spent and how public services are delivered right across Leeds.
Its launch will come at the same time as one of the biggest revamps the YEP has seen in its proud 125-year history.
The redesigned paper will have a brighter look and feel, reflecting its place at the heart of an upwardly-mobile 21st century city.
But the changes we have planned will not weaken our long-established crusading stance on behalf of our readers and the city of Leeds.
And nowhere will that continued campaigning approach be more effectively highlighted than with the Your Right To Know investigations.
YEP managing editor Nicola Furbisher said: “The Yorkshire Evening Post has always been and always will be rooted in the communities it serves.
“First and foremost we belong to our readers – and our commitment to getting to the heart of important matters on their behalf is as strong as it ever was.”
The revamped YEP will hit the streets for the first time on Monday, January 19.
As part of its relaunch, we are putting together a team of volunteer correspondents who will compile weekly columns filled with grassroots news about the places where they live.
In a separate move, we are also searching for people interested in signing up as members of our reader panel.
The panel will provide us with feedback on the paper’s redesign and will also be asked for their views on topics in the headlines.
For more details on the reader panel, visit www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk.
People interested in becoming a community correspondent are asked to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do you what to find out courtesy of Your Right To Know?
Maybe it’s how much the cash-strapped city council spends on hospitality each year.
Or perhaps you’re wondering whether your community is getting the quality of care it deserves from the NHS.
Whatever the issue, don’t hesitate to raise it and let the YEP investigate for you.
Simply email: email@example.com or ring the newsdesk on 0113 238 8248 and we’ll do the rest.
