We are proud to present Universal DisCredit, a powerful new film that shines a light on the devastating consequences of Universal Credit (UC),  a flagship policy of successive Conservative-led governments.

Featuring interviews with campaigners, policy makers, academics, and people with first-hand experience of UC, it shows how people are being driven to poverty, food banks, destitution, and death.

Please share this film widely and join our campaign to #ScrapUC

Film produced by Videoblogg Productions in association with The Canary.

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. I didn’t hear a word about retraining people to acquire work skills if possible to survive. It appears this mean spirited abuse of people for doing poorly makes one believe the UC policy is to shift the responsibility over to God to deal with it in whatever way He determines to be appropriate.
      To be safe the Tories plan to vastly increase the private prison capacities will take care of any remaining problem people.
      At least then these souls could be put to work on plantations as they do in the USA to earn a profit for society.
      Citizenship seems to be far too expensive an enterprise for the Tory Party to consider it a viable condition of civilization.
      A world without compassion or understanding will prove successful must be the ideal Official State for governance for the Right way of doing things.
      Reminds one of the Church’s spiritual dominance in the 1600’s before the Scottish Enlightenment began.
