Unlock Democracy is a London based not-for-profit company that campaigns for a vibrant, inclusive democracy that puts power in the hands of the people. I worked with the Director Tom Brake and Shaun Roberts the Head of Campaigns and Digital.
Often it is hard for not-for-profit companies as they are not governed by the charities commission and yet in many ways they have the same type of structure and goals. Organisations that lobby the government for change are not allowed to be charities.
The Campaigning and political activity guidance for charities (CC9) is worth a read, but basically, Charities have to be set up for charitable purposes only.
The Unlock Democracy team were a joy to work with and I look forward to working with them in the future should they require any further help.
