Care homes simply failed to follow the advice we did not provide

A person who looks like Boris Johnson, wearing suit and a yellow safety jacket, is saying “Care homes simply failed to follow the advice we did not provide”. He is standing next to a digger, with words on the side that read “How long can we get away with this?”.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?

    1. Far be it from me to consider the Prime Minister other than a serial liar, who is wholly unfit for the job and who heads one of the most incompetent cabinets of my 70+ years, but the infection rate, death rate and procedures followed in care homes needs to be examined. The majority of these are privatised and the role and duties of the owners has not been examined in the public media. Managers have been interviewed, but, they are employees. We have see almost nothing of the owners and, for example their contractual duties towards those living in the homes and their duty of care to their employees. This has been as much an omission within the ‘left’ media as with the rest. Indeed, early in the epidemic, the Morning Star quoted, without identification, a statement which had been issued by the owner of a number of care homes, an active member of the Conservative Party and a funder of a right wing unionist organisation, which attacked the Scottish Government.
