We’re a not-for-profit organisation, and we’re just a little bit different from your everyday charity.

We believe

… that strong democratic accountability and a thriving civil society are vital to our common welfare, and that these cannot survive where people do not engage with government and communities.

We work online

… because we believe that the internet can meaningfully lower the barriers to taking the first civic or democratic steps in a citizen’s life, and that it can do so at scale.
