Full Fact is the UK’s independent, non-partisan, factchecking charity and with your help we're going to factcheck the election.

With only 9 days to go we're full steam ahead at Full Fact HQ

I’m Faith from Full Fact. I joined for the election to help co-ordinate the campaign, blog the unfolding events so that people are kept up to date and edit fast emerging material. It’s been hectic but I feel honoured to be part of something which I feel is so valuable every day. This has been possible thanks to your donation.  

The team has grown from 11 to 30, we’ve already factchecked the Labour, Conservative, UKIP and Lib Dem manifestos, and key election issues and there’s a lot more on its way.

Just last night we live factchecked The Battle for No 10 with Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn being interviewed by Jeremy Paxman and a live studio audience. You can see our second-by-second factchecks here.

In the next 9 days you can expect us to live factcheck 6 more debates, publish the answers to people’s most googled questions on the big election issues, host 2 Facebook Lives with the leading experts in the country on: Immigration, Economy, NHS and Brexit, and to reach millions of people directly through our site, and through our partners.

You can see our work in the Evening Standard, Telegraph, and Dazed Digital to name a few. We also published a series of print adverts with Facebook on news literacy. We’re working with the Press Association and Change.org too.

I hope you feel that we’re putting your donation to good use. Leave a comment to let us know what more we could be doing.

After every vote we get a flood of messages saying “I wish I had known about you before I voted!”, we want to make this election different. If we reach our £100k target we can guarantee that we will reach 5 million people.

Can you please take a moment to share the crowdfunder with your friends and family? It’ll make a big difference in the 9 days we have left. Please share it on Facebook and Twitter.

A message from you to friends and family will go along way.

Thank you,

Faith
