We want to live in a country where...

  • Democracy and the rule of law are sacrosanct
  • Everyone has confidence in democracy’s ability to resolve political differences
  • The democratic system delivers a Parliament that more accurately reflects the society we live in and all the views we hold


It is important to us that...

  • Everyone should have a voice in the democratic debate, regardless of gender, ethnic background, sexuality or socio- economic status
  • Engaging with the democratic process should be no more difficult than purchasing a new mobile phone (and even more rewarding!)


What we do

  • Raise public awareness of how precious, and fragile, democracy is
  • Give people the tools and insight they need to mount successful campaigns in their communities
  • Drive demand for a reformed democratic system that better fits the needs and expectations of a 21st Century electorate
  • Shine a harsh light on those who abuse or undermine democracy

Democracy Unleashed

Our flagship campaign, Democracy Unleashed, aims to improve public understanding of democracy, increase public engagement in democratic processes and support efforts to reform our outdated first-past-the-post electoral system.
