mySociety’s mission is to help people become more powerful in the civic and democratic parts of their lives, through digital means.
We invent and popularise digital tools that enable citizens to exert power over institutions and decision makers.
We believe that strong democratic accountability and a thriving civil society are vital to our common welfare, and that these cannot survive where people do not engage with government and communities.
We work online because we believe that the internet can meaningfully lower the barriers to taking the first civic or democratic steps in a citizen’s life, and that it can do so at scale.
