Work With Us

Our mission is to develop, support and campaign for new ways of involving people in the decisions that affect their lives – but we can’t do it alone.

We work with governments, parliaments, civil society organisations, academics and the public across the UK and internationally. Find out more about who we have work with and our previous projects

Our work is focused in three areas:

  • Advocacy and communications – Making the case for participation and deliberation as core and expected parts of democracy, and ensuring that people in positions of power and influence understand and support their use;
  • Capacity building and standards – Building the capacity of public servants and practitioners, and developing the body of evidence, principles and standards that support good participatory and deliberative practice; and,
  • Innovation and practice – Encouraging frequent use of participatory and deliberative processes, and ensuring continuous learning and innovation to improve democracy.
