mySociety is a UK charity which helps people be active citizens — whether that means getting in touch with your MP, checking what’s been going on in Parliament, or letting the authorities know about something that needs fixing in your neighbourhood. Through online services like TheyWorkForYou, WriteToThem and FixMyStreet, we make it as simple as possible for everyone to play an active part in society.
We know that Parliament can be complicated, but for democracy to be truly representative it needs to be accessible to everyone, including those who have traditionally been excluded. We’re especially keen to reach out to minority communities, to young people, the less affluent… in short, everyone who doesn’t think Parliament is anything to do with them! We’d love to show you how you can use the democratic system to make real change in your life and in your community. UK Parliament Week is a great way for us to shout about these tools — and to ask you to spread the word about them too.
