Help mend our broken democracy!
Sign our petition
Our latest campaign, starting on the 25th of August 2018, is to petition Sheffield Council to force them to hold a referendum on making our Council more democratic. Our petition will force the Council to hold a referendum on changing from the current ‘strong leader’ cabinet system, to a more democratic committee-type system.

What Drives Us
We know that active, informed citizens and communities are vital for a healthy local democracy. We include members of all political parties, but are mostly not in political parties – just ordinary Sheffield residents. We are committed to making common cause with each other, as neighbours and community members. We do not work on issues that harm or disrespect particular groups of people, in fact we respect, and will defend, the rights of communities that may face discrimination or marginalisation.
