Help us investigate: Housing and homelessness


(Alastair Tibbitt) #1

Earlier this year we ran a poll we asked our members and supporters what the focus of our next big investigation should be. The most popular suggestion was housing and homelessness, and this week we launched our crowd-funder to help us raise the additional cash we’re going to need.

We’ve already raised nearly a third of what we need, but we’d really appreciate your help in making the crowdfunder a success. Here’s what you can do:

  • Email your friends and family the link and ask them to back the investigation. Tell them it’s the cheapest way to get a subscription to The Ferret :slight_smile:

  • Share it on your Facebook page and your other social media accounts.

  • Pitch in yourself. If you already subscribe to The Ferret, you can use the perk you get from pitching into the crowdfunder as a gift subscription for a friend or relative.

Our last investigations into fracking and refugees really have made a difference - our stories got mentioned in public policy documents, and in both Westminster and Holyrood parliaments. They also got thousands of shares on social media and some even won awards.

With your support we can do this again.

Here’s a video that explains a bit more:
