Real life stories from across Britain

Engage Britain is a fully independent charity that brings people together to tackle our country’s biggest challenges.

“There are a lot of people out there with a heck of a lot of good ideas for how to run things better.

But they aren’t asked about it … One person might have a recommendation of doing something that works better than what we’re doing now. And surely, if that’s the case, we should listen at least, you know? … We could have people’s input to try and improve things for everybody.”
