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.

Is the Minister aware that we do not want this sort of thing in the public service? We have never had it. We can do all our own organising without any help from Ministers. This is intolerable.
  • Orders of the Day — CRIMINAL JUSTICE (SCOTLAND) BILL [Lords]: New Clause. — (Corporal Punishment in Prisons.) 30 Nov 1949

    This is a very difficult subject to discuss, because I imagine that all of us, on whichever side of the House we sit, and to whichever party we belong, do not like the idea of corporal punishment. I like it as little as any man in England, but if we are to be governed solely by our dislike of the idea of corporal punishment we shall reach the wrong decision here today. There are bigger issues...
