We can build brilliant online tools for you

21 January 2015

mySociety for hire

Many people don't know that as well as our charitable work, we do loads of work for commercial clients.

From changing the way Parliament works, to helping launch a film, by way of Panama, Wales, and every job centre in the UK, this blog post whizzes you through some of the best things we made for other people.

Need us to build you something nifty? Drop us a line!

Bag an exclusive FixMyStreet tote

Cheer up this grey January! We've got 50 of these bright FixMyStreet bags to give away to the first people who get in touch. We're asking just a small favour in return.

With your bag, we'll include a stack of our promo postcards for you to leave at your workplace, favourite cafe, library, etc.

Sounds like a deal? Then drop a quick line to, including your name and address, and we'll send a package your way.

Downloadable goodies

Bags and postcards aren't the only way to tell your pals about FixMyStreet. Have you seen our downloadable FixMyStreet goodies? Great for schools, clubs, societies and... people like you!

Omidyar Network funding

We've had big news on the funding front – a new grant from Omidyar Network ensures that we'll be able to continue and extend our work with international partners. Read all about it here.

Who's going to be your next MP?

The chances are, he or she is already listed on, Democracy Club's Open Source project to collect information about every candidate for next year's General Election.

Put your postcode in to to see which candidates are standing in your area.

You can help!

YourNextMP is a collective effort, and no technical skills are required to help. Could you improve your candidates' details – maybe add their Facebook pages? Twitter accounts? Wikipedia entries? You'll be making a better data source for everyone.
