Welcome to Democraise Ltd
Democratise is a small social company based in Durham city. Driven by a desire to re-engage people with politics, we develop platforms which aim to revolutionise the way citizens interact with the democratic process.
We believe that the current trend of declining participation in the political system can be halted and even reversed by reconnecting people to the decisions that impact their lives. People can be empowered by making clear the power they can wield, our goal is to enable this to happen.
