What you can do

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.

  • Orders of the Day — Civil List. 24 May 1937

    It is interesting to hear those who are extreme advocates of economy getting up to support a proposition that we should spend more money. In so far as some of us here are concerned, we recognise the position which the Crown occupies in the history of Great Britain. We are willing to provide the occupants of the Throne with decent accommodation and with everything necessary for the...
