This impactful day is officially acknowledged by all major UK political parties and is a non-partisan campaign coordinated by My Life My Say. NVRD serves as a pivotal moment for organisations to actively contribute to the democratic process by facilitating voter registration. By participating, you become a crucial part of a movement dedicated to empowering citizens and fostering civic engagement.

No Vote, No Voice - Voter ID Awareness Campaign
The Elections Act (2022) has brought about unprecedented changes to our voting system, most notably the requirement to bring photo Voter ID to the polling station in order to vote. Shout Out UK has teamed up with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and a diverse coalition of civil society organisations, education institutions and London borough electoral services to deliver an impartial public awareness campaign about these changes. The campaign aims to make sure all eligible Londoners, particularly under-registered and under-represented Londoners, can continue to access their civic and democratic rights.

The Democracy Box Creative Cascade
The Democracy Box Creative Cascade Schools Programme© can equip and prepare teachers to replicate the Democracy Box young co-creator process with students aged 7 to 16 in all secondary and primary schools and non-formal education settings. The programme enables teachers and students to creatively re-tell and cascade The Democracy Box Story in multiple ways, developing democratic awareness, understanding and participation among school children and educators in Wales. Each year students will learn the story in more detail and re-tell it and cascade it to the year below them using progressively more complex creative skills, mediums and techniques year on year. The programme creates the foundation for learners to begin to develop an understanding of their responsibilities as citizens of the UK and to recognise their own and others' civil rights.
