We’re the UK’s leading public participation charity. We work towards creating a more vibrant democracy, with people at the heart of decision-making.

We know that democracy often feels as if it's not working as it should, leaving people and decision-makers feeling divided, distrustful and powerless. We demonstrate how things can be different. We support people and decision-makers to work together to solve our biggest challenges. 

Our mission is to develop, support and campaign for new ways of involving people in the decisions that affect their lives.
