About us

Liberty Investigates is an editorially independent investigative journalism unit based at Liberty. We reveal hidden abuses, hold power to account, and empower people to create positive change. We cover policing and counter-terrorism, mass surveillance, the hostile environment, disability rights and beyond.

Founded in 2019, Liberty Investigates is a small team of investigative journalists publishing in-depth stories exposing human rights abuses in the UK.

Investigative journalism has long been a vital tool to shine a light on injustice and fight for a fairer society. But the profession has been in decline.

That’s where Liberty comes in. Liberty has defended ordinary people’s rights and freedoms since 1934. Liberty Investigates is a natural next step.


"Our stories aim to hold power to account"

We are committed to accurate, high-impact journalism in the public interest. As well as bearing witness to wrongdoing, our stories aim to hold power to account and spark positive change.

Liberty Investigates is made up of Mirren Gidda and Eleanor Rose.

We are editorially independent and funded by Liberty. If you want to support our journalism, you can donate to Liberty.
