The Patchwork Foundation works to equip young people with the necessary skills and experience to encourage active participation in democracy and wider civil society. We believe that our society is only as good as our democracy and our democracy is only as great as the range of the voices within it. We know that increased confidence and self-belief leads to greater participation and realisation. The result is a stronger and more representative country; a nation where we encourage everyone to play their part, and a society that hears and responds to the needs of all.
The Patchwork Foundation mission is to promote and encourage the positive integration of disadvantaged and minority communities into British democracy and civil society.
