As well as running sites in the UK, we also encourage re-use of our open source code so that other organisations can run similar sites anywhere in the world. We actively partner with such organisations and help them get thir projects up and running.
Some examples include:
FixMyStreet - fault-reporting software.
WriteToThem - allows you to contact your elected representatives, even if you don't know who they are.
TheyWorkForYou - publishes activity in Parliament, in a format that's easy to follow, link or subscribe to.
WhatDoTheyKnow - makes it easy to submit a Freedom of Information Request.
SayIt - our newest project, allowing the easy publication of transcripts online.
At the moment our focus is on sharing these technologies with partner organisations around the world, saving them time and money in the creation of online tools that will empower citizens and move them closer to democratic participation.
