About us


We are calling on politicians from all parties to support citizenship education so that it remains in the national curriculum and schools continue to improve the teaching of the subject.


We believe citizenship education – through teaching about politics, the law and the economy and by providing opportunities for young people to gain the skills they need to take part in society – is essential for preparing young people for responsible participation in our shared democratic life.


Democratic Life is a coalition of organisations and individuals in the UK seeking to strengthen and extend young people’s entitlement to high-quality citizenship education in England.
