Welfare Weekly is a socially responsible and ethical news provider, specialising in social welfare related news and opinion.
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 and a class warfare that has engulfed British society.
Welfare Weekly exists to help build bridges between all social classes, through news designed to counter stereotypes and correct public misconceptions.
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 no knowledge or experience of ‘real life’ in Britain today – but by people who truly understand social security and have experienced life on the breadline for themselves.
Britain’s welfare state exists to help and support anyone, regardless of who they are or where they come from – or at least it should. We can all fall upon hard times at any moment. Very few people are completely immune from hardship and possible destitution. It is a unifying system that has the power to bring people together for the common good, when managed properly and portrayed in a positive light.
Welfare in Britain is at a cross-roads and threatened by private companies seeking to make a quick buck off the backs of our poor and vulnerable.
That’s where Welfare Weekly comes in. We aim to keep our fans and readers updated on issues that matter to them. We do so in a way that does not judge people in receipt of social security benefits and other welfare services. And we will always promote Britain’s welfare state and seek to act as a voice for those who rely upon it for their very survival.
