Companies House as a Tool for Investigative Journalism

This session will focus on how to find information on Companies House, how to use its search tools to find meaningful data and how to interpret the information you come across. Companies House isn't a tool meant to be used by journalists, therefore, when used that way, it's important to look out for the relevant bits while being aware of the potentially misleading or even false information.
