Full Fact is the UK’s independent fact-checking organisation. During the general election they ran an 18 hour a day, 7 days a week rapid-response, analysis and rebuttal centre based in King’s College London. 1300 people pledged £33,000 through a crowdfunding campaign to make the project possible and volunteers donated 3000 hours of their time to the cause.
Will Moy, Full Fact’s Director, will talk about how it all worked, the biggest achievements of the project and the challenges of getting the right information out to the public.
