mySociety’s mission is to help people become more powerful in the civic and democratic parts of their lives, through digital means.
We do this in three ways:
1.) We build websites that make it easy for people to write to their politicians, get potholes fixed, get public transport irritations resolved and extract information from governments. Find out more about our UK projects here.
2.) We provide consultancy, bespoke software development and software products to organisations keen to meet the expectations of digital natives. Find out more about our products and services.
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.
We are legally part of a charity. We raise money for our activities from two sources. About half comes from donors, large and small, and the other half comes from profits created by our wholly owned trading arm, mySociety Ltd.
Meet the mySociety team: we are mostly in the UK, although we have two colleagues in Estonia and Kenya.
We also have a group of wonderful volunteers who contribute without remuneration. Would you like to get involved too?
