How does it work?

We’ve sent all parties our 5 principles and specific policy recommendations for them to consider adopting.

Here, the public are being asked to show their support for the 5 principles, which will also show the political parties that there is support for the principles

Closer to the election, we will report back with the results. A clear analysis of how each party scored against our our 5 principles.
