What We Do
The Sarah Hughes Trust awards an annual grant to cover accommodation costs for talented emerging journalists as part of the Guardian’s and Observer’s Positive Action work-placement scheme.
We hold a yearly lecture in Sarah’s name, connecting the disciplines of humanities and medicine, with the History of Medicine Society, Royal Society of Medicine.
In conjunction with the History of Medicine Society and the Medical Journalists Association we award The Sarah Hughes Trust Prize, presented at the annual lecture. This prize is for emerging or established journalists working with healthcare practitioners or media outlets that expose the use of false or misleading information (so-called 'fake news) in health and medicine. The purpose of the prize is to further educational activities between journalists and healthcare practitioners while taking into account both equality and diversity.
We also hold The Sarah Hughes Archive. This is Sarah’s collection of printed newspaper cuttings covering her huge range of work through articles, features, television and book reviews, news reports and earlier sports journalism, and dates from 1997 to 2021.
