Support TheyWorkForYou's work in the new Parliament

TheyWorkForYou is run by mySociety, a small UK charity.

We're a very efficient operation and do a lot with a small team. At the moment TheyWorkForYou, which is used by millions of people each year, is run with less than the equivalent of one full-time person.

If we had a bit more money, we could achieve a lot more.

We want MPs to meet the standards and expectations of the people who elected them - you!

If you share that goal please donate today to enable greater transparency and accountability of the next government.

Learn more about our current work, and our new project WhoFundsThem - looking into MPs’ and APPGs’ financial interests.

I believe that his decision in this case has...
  • Orders of the Day — POLICYHOLDERS PROTECTION BILL [Lords] 18 Jul 1975

    The surprising thing about the Bill is that it was ever presented. It comes odd from a Government who pride themselves on their willingness for consultation.
