About Us

Generation Plymouth is a local news website written for and by young people in Plymouth.

The site was set up with the aim of encouraging young people living in Plymouth to engage with news stories happening in their local communities. By focusing on stories that are both interesting and exciting to young people, we hope to make reading the local news more appealing to people under the age of 25.

We also aim to provide young writers in Plymouth with the opportunity to gain valuable journalism experience and develop their writing portfolio. Opportunities to gain experience in the journalism industry are fairly limited outside of London, but Generation Plymouth is hoping to change this. All of our contributors are aged 16 – 25, with many currently studying at sixth form or university alongside writing for the site.

We hope you enjoy browsing the site. If you have any questions about Generation Plymouth then please do not hesitate to get in contact with us at generationplymouth@gmail.com.
