Secure and fair democracies need engaged and informed citizens.
mySociety helps people be active citizens with technology, research and data used by individuals, journalists, and civil society in over 40 countries around the world.
We build and share digital technologies across three interlinked practice areas, Democracy, Transparency and Community; each underpinned by research, sector building and appropriate commercial work.
Founded in 2003, we are recognised as a global pioneer in the use of online technologies to help citizens perform civic and democratic tasks – helping establish the Civic Technology sector in the process.
We work with digital technologies because they lower the barriers to taking the first civic or democratic steps in a citizen’s life, and can connect people and organisations at scale.
Our aim is to enhance civic participation for millions of people, making it possible for them to collectively drive changes in the policy and practice of governments, and ultimately contribute to building effective, accountable and inclusive governance and more equitable, democratic and sustainable societies.
