How we’re creating change

As the longest-standing pro-democracy organisation in the world, we work alongside parties, politicians, academics and other campaigners across the UK to secure a fairer political system. Our work is focused on three main areas to create change.

  1. Building alliances for electoral reform. We work with activists and politicians to get commitments to voting reform in party manifestos, backed up by significant increase in public support.
  2. Deepening public involvement in our democracy. We work with academics to better understand how a UK-wide constitutional convention could be run, alongside deeper citizen involvement in devolution and where power lies.
  3. Winning policy pledges to build a better democracy. Party commitments to an elected House of Lords, votes at 16, a registration revolution, fair boundaries, party funding reform and a democratic devolution settlement.
