mySociety is a not-for-profit social enterprise, based in the UK and working internationally. We build online technologies that give people the power to get things changed, and we share these technologies so that they can be used anywhere.
… that strong democratic accountability and a thriving civil society are vital to our common welfare, and that these only survive when people engage with government and communities.
We work with online technologies
… because the internet can lower the barriers to taking the first civic or democratic steps in a citizen’s life, and it can do so at scale.
In three connected areas of civic life
- Our Transparency services make it easy for citizens to surface information
- Our Democracy tools help people hold their parliaments to account
- Our Community technologies empower local authorities and residents to make improvements in their own neighbourhoods.
