Civic Activism Project
One aspect of the project is the ‘Digital Fact Checking Tool’. The aim of this tool is to produce a verified, reliable and evidence based online source of advice and information people can trust. Our work to date on this has been to help ‘bust’ common myths and misconceptions around welfare benefits and welfare claimants. Over the coming months we hope to develop the tool by adding more information around fact checking statements made in the media, real life impacts of the changes and common issues citizens are presenting to our services with as Welfare Reform continues to roll out.
Advice NI are keen to continue to encourage citizens to tell us their story. You can get involved and help us by forwarding stories of how welfare reform has and is impacting your clients. You can also encourage citizens to: -
- Complete our online Citizens Reporting tool
- Post comments on Social Media using the @AdviceNI, #WelfareReformNI and #CivicActivismNI handles
