About

The Detail is an investigative news and analysis website dedicated to in-depth reporting on issues of vital public interest.

Our not-for-profit platform, established in 2011, is a multi-award winning digital media organisation committed to delivering challenging journalism.

The Detail's core areas of investigation include health, education, politics, justice & crime, government accountability, and the legacy of conflict in Northern Ireland.

We draw funding from philanthropic, public and private sources and declare these when we publish our projects.

We can then maximise our ability to fuel progressive debate by providing our work for free to the public, while also making it available to other media outlets nationally and internationally. Media platforms are welcome to republish our content, though we ask that they give prominent reference to The Detail as being the source.

We are dedicated to fair, accurate reporting, but we are not neutral on the issues of the day, in that we believe public service journalism should promote accountability, equality and good government.

We want to challenge dominant narratives that are at odds with the facts, by producing reports and analysis that can change the conversation.
