Tools for improving your community for citizens, activists and public servants
Within our Community practice, we run and develop services to help citizens support and enrich their own neighbourhoods, through engagement with local government.
The keystone of this is our FixMyStreet platform, a simple way to report faults to the authorities responsible for getting them fixed.
FixMyStreet is a thriving UK service. Partner sites around the world also rely on its Open Source codebase, and we ourselves have also refactored its core functionality for numerous spin-off community projects.
In all, FixMyStreet empowers millions of citizens to make an improvement in their own neighbourhood, quickly and efficiently.
