The Government's contribution to the success of National Democracy Week was resourced from existing democratic engagement budgets. To date, Cabinet Office expenditure has been less than £60k and is not expected to change significantly.

The Government established the National Democracy Week Council to develop and deliver events during the Week. Members from civil society and local government sectors delivered more than 40 events between 2-8 July, starting with the National Democracy Week Awards and including activities from a diverse range of member organisations, such as Mencap, Faiths Forums for London and the British Youth Council. Details are available on the National Democracy Week website:
