Remote Volunteering

Covid-19: Fake News

We're looking for people to document the fake news circulating the internet, social media and in print.

What's involved?

Reporting to the Volunteer Engagement Coordinator:

You will be invited to an online platform to share the fake news you have discovered and what the context is to the post/article. These could be screen shots or scans of articles to be shared with others also taking part as well as your findings being deposited into our archive. If you wish to remain anonymous when depositing your findings to the archive, that can be arranged.


Why get involved?

You will be making a big difference to the future understanding of this time in Suffolk's history.

  1. Sign into your account or sign up to Volunteer Makers.
  2. Accept the challenge.
  3. Await a response from Suffolk Archives with more information.
  4. Log the time you spend on this challenge on Volunteer Makers.
