FactCheckNI is Northern Ireland’s first dedicated fact-checking service. We publish nonpartisan articles on the accuracy of statements by public figures, major institutions, and other attributable claims of interest to society.

FactCheckNI is a project of the Northern Ireland Foundation, which is a charitable organisation registered in Northern Ireland (Company Number NI068079). The Northern Ireland Foundation promotes a shared future in Northern Ireland, local community activism, and the exchange of international best practices.

FactCheckNI works in partnership with Transformative Connections, which is a social enterprise that provides research and evaluation, training, and consultancy services. TranConn focuses on promoting peacebuilding and positive social change.

FactCheckNI is guided by an advisory panel, reflecting the functions and audiences of our work, including: official statistics, journalism, law, training, education, community engagement, and public affairs.
