VIEWdigital is an online platform. We aim to independently produce and publish original social affairs journalism in VIEW magazine/ezine and VIEWdigital news site. We cover issues that have a major effect on society and get readers talking about them. VIEW readers are interested in topical social issues and we as journalists are motivated to provide interesting social affairs stories to inform our readers. VIEW magazine is printed and distributed to libraries and we also organise events to promote discussion and debate on issues raised by our journalism.
