For more than 80 years the Post has been the place to go for all your local news, campaigns, events and sport.
Through our newspaper, website and social media channels we offer unrivalled independent coverage of our multi-cultural borough.
Over the years we have covered the highs and lows of what matters to you.
We have regularly featured news on the borough’s major employers in Ford Dagenham, Sanofi, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and numerous others along the riverside.
We have also covered the glorious Town Shows culminating in the arrival of the Olympic Torch after being named a host borough for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
As an independent paper we aim to champion the cause of the borough’s people, hold authority to account, never shy away from difficult news stories and profile your success stories.
While doing all this we strive to have an independent voice and adhere to a firm code of conduct, based around ethical and balanced journalism.
Through our campaigns we have supported the council’s fight to secure greater funding for more school places, highlighted the work of the borough’s food banks and most recently launched a Good Neighbours initiative to encourage residents to check on their elderly and vulnerable neighbours during the winter.
Throughout the transformation that Barking and Dagenham will see over the next decade, with thousands of new homes along Barking Riverside and South Dagenham, the Post will continue to be pivotal to the local community and seek to represent the multi-cultura borough.
