ACOS (A Culture of Safety) Alliance Security Training 

The ACOS Alliance is an unprecedented coalition of news organizations, freelance journalist associations and press freedom organizations working together to champion safe and responsible journalistic practices for freelance and local journalists worldwide. The Alliance facilitates collaborative initiatives to improve the safety of journalists exposed to danger.

Over the last year, ACOS has brought together news organizations and NGOs around joined safety training activities, helping more than 150 freelance and local journalists to gain access to safety training. This Standard Application Form aims at building a database of freelance journalists in need of safety training. The form helps us to reach out to individual freelancers when relevant opportunities for safety training arise, and to coordinate a response to current needs in partnership with news organizations and NGOs.

Please note the data collected through this form will be stored securely and the information will be accessible to relevant ACOS partners. Some of these partners have their own internal application procedures and in order to benefit from their financial support you may have to go though their internal application procedures. Completing this form does not guarantee a bursary.
