About The Politics Project

The Politics Project supports young people to use their voice by providing them with outstanding democratic education. We specialise in digital democracy, supporting young people, teachers and politicians to use digital tools to learn, teach and engage in politics.

Through our Digital Surgeries programme, we support politicians to engage with young people using digital platforms to build strong relationships and a shared understanding of issues.

We work with a wide range of politicians across parties, from local councillors to MPs and government ministers, including Sir Keir Starmer MP, Ben Bradley MP, Caroline Lucas MP and Mayor Andy Burnham.

Over the last 18 months, we have extended this work to support a range of partners, including the Parliamentary Education Service. We also work with parliamentary staff to develop a version of the  programme that allows young people to use digital platforms to provide evidence to parliamentary select committee inquiries, putting young people’s voices at the heart of national policy debates.

Due to Covid-19 we have seen an increase in demand for our digital approach and anticipate significant growth in the upcoming year.
