To revive our democracy we need to create new ways of engaging people in it. This is vital for us to be, and to feel, part of a wider society and system. A system that represents all of us, not just some of us.
Vote for Policies is a non-partisan, independent not-for-profit, powered by a small team of volunteers from all walks of life. We share a passion for giving people the tools to make their voices heard, and restore the belief that we can make a difference.
Our vision is of the UK as a fairer, healthier, happier society where democratic engagement is an active part of everyday life. And our mission is to provide UK citizens with the tools and support they need to engage and actively participate.
Our model for increasing participation, recognises the need to support the drivers of participation (discussion, education, and the feeling of empowerment).
We partner with organisations that support the most marginalised voter groups, so that we can build the right tools and services.
In order to deliver the strategy that we outline here, we intend to grow our team over the next 3 years from being volunteer-run to a team of five full-time staff. If you'd like to support us in our work, please get in touch.
