ABOUT US

We are the first and oldest association of foreign journalists in the world, founded in 1888

All major international news outlets are represented, from print to radio, from TV to web

We provide access and accreditation to a wide variety of events in London

and the UK

During the Coronavirus pandemic, the FPA continues to support the work of foreign correspondents reporting from London and the UK.

As gatekeepers of the UK Press Cards scheme, we continue to issue press cards as usual and we are constantly working to secure access to government briefings for our members (see below).

Throughout the year, the FPA holds a wide-ranging programme of briefings, facilitating access to Government Departments, Whitehall, the City's financial district and Royal events. It is an Observer on the National Committee for the Safety of Journalists (DCMS).

The FPA chairs Foreign Lobby briefings with Number 10 Downing Street, the Foreign Office (FCDO) and others, through our Director, Deborah Bonetti.

We also organise book presentations, political and current affairs briefings, conferences with key figures etc.

We are open to working with other organisations, embassies, PR agencies, government departments, etc. to organise briefings and events on various topics.
