Engage Britain
Making our country work for us all
About Engage Britain

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

Right now, none of us get enough of a say on the important decisions that affect our everyday lives – like health and care, poverty or education.

We’re here to change that. To make our country work for us all.

“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.”
