Full Fact is the UK's independent factchecking charity.

We are


We are a registered charity and do not receive any government funding. We actively seek a diverse range of funding and are transparent about all our sources of income.


We don't take sides in any debate and don't support any political party or campaign. We've been quoted by politicians on all sides and corrected people on all sides. We have a cross-party Board of Trustees and safeguards in place at every level of our organisation to ensure our neutrality.


Factchecks alone are not enough to halt the spread of misinformation. We also push for corrections where necessary, and work with government departments and research institutions to improve the quality and communication of information at source.
