The Citizenship Foundation inspires young people to take part in society as equal members.
We help them to understand the law, politics and democratic life. We promote participation, we help teachers to teach citizenship and we work with young people on issues that concern them.
Our work involves:
- Shaping schools
Helping teachers to help young people take responsible action in their lives and communities and shape the world around them;
- Inspiring action
Motivating young people to shape the world for everyone's benefit;
- Influencing policy
Helping school leaders, policy-makers and community leaders to understand the importance of citizenship education.
We want society to be fairer, more inclusive and more cohesive.
We want a democracy in which everyone has the knowledge, skills, and confidence to take part as effective citizens.
