Involve has a vision of a democracy where people are at the heart of decision-making.
It needs to make important choices as a society. But democracy isn’t working as it should. Decision-makers are struggling to get things done. People are frustrated the system isn’t working for them. Everyone is feeling divided, distrustful and powerless.
If things don’t change, people’s lives will get worse and democracy itself will be under threat.
It is demonstrating how things can be different. It supports people and decision-makers to work together to solve its biggest challenges. It wants people to have power over the decisions that affect their lives so that democracy works for everyone.
It believes no question is too contentious or complex for people to get to grips with and make a meaningful contribution. In fact, involving the public is often the best – and only – way to overcome political stalemate and solve the most controversial and challenging topics.
