With a fragmented and divided socially it is more important than ever not to report welfare news in such a way as to inflame hatred, social tensions or stoke a class warfare that has engulfed British society.
News, when reported responsibly and ethically, has the power to pull people together and help everyone realise the true enemy is those who seek to divide us.
Welfare is now, and has always been, an extremely contentious topic, with many hardline beliefs and opinions rooted in lies and myths, rather than truths and realities.
Unlike some other news media, Welfare Weekly is not run by journalists from ‘middle England’ – who may have little or no experience of hardship – but by people who truly understand social security and have experienced life on the breadline for themselves.
With your help and support we can continue to highlight the plight of poor and vulnerable people living in the UK, and with a little hope and perseverance change things for the better.
