FactCheckNI is Northern Ireland’s first and only dedicated fact-checking service.

Bad information erodes trust in reliable sources of information in Northern Ireland. It undermines public confidence, increases apathy, and further reduces participation in democratic process. It has also effectively placed another hurdle between people and accurate information and data. FactCheckNI works to reset this dynamic and to ensure people feel empowered and informed. We want people to “THINK. CHECK. SHARE”.

We publish fact checked articles on claims made in public – by politicians, public figures, media outlets and viral online content. We also provide training in fact-checking and critical thinking skills.

We are a verified signatory to the International Fact-Checking Network Code of Principles, with commitments to nonpartisanship, fairness, and transparency.

FactCheckNI is a Community Interest Company (CIC) registered in Northern Ireland (Company Number NI660549).
