We’re the UK’s leading public participation charity, on a mission to put people at the heart of decision-making.

We’re a small but passionate team focused on giving people more power over the decisions that affect their lives. We want to build a stronger democracy that works for everyone – that gives people real power to bring about change in their lives, communities and beyond. 

See our vision.

Involve was founded in 2003 to “to create a new focus for thinking and action on the links between new forms of public participation and existing democratic institutions”. 

We recognise that democracy isn’t working as it should, leading to people and decision-makers feeling frustrated and powerless. We demonstrate how things can be different.
