We help people be active citizens.
Established in 2003, mySociety is a not for profit group pioneering the use of online technologies to empower citizens to take their first steps towards greater civic participation.
We help people be active citizens with technology, research and data that individuals, journalists, and civil society can use, openly and for free.
We believe that secure democracies and a strong civil society are vital to our common welfare, and that these only prosper when people meaningfully engage with their government and within their communities.
Our aim is to empower people everywhere to become informed and active citizens, able to fully participate in shaping the decisions that impact their lives, contribute to flourishing communities, and hold power to account wherever it may lie.
Our permanent UK based staff work across three interlinked practice areas: Transparency, Democracy and Community.
Through our wholly owned commercial arm, SocietyWorks, we provide expertise to local government and the public sector, the profits of which are used to fund our charitable work through mySociety.
Our core commercial product is FixMyStreet Pro, used by dozens of councils of all shapes and sizes in the UK. SocietyWorks offers additional options including features and add-on services relating to Waste, Environment, and other place-based services.
