Imagine if we could inspire and create something amazing together?
Both individuals and groups of people can create meaningful change but sometimes they just don’t know how, and let’s face it, change is not easy. So, we built Vocaleyes, a platform for collective action to inspire ideas, promote collaboration and help groups to really make a change and move ideas forward.
Our platform empowers individuals and teams to co-create, share and collectively agree on and build projects, ideas and concepts.
Communities and organisations of all sizes are increasingly finding that current methods of stakeholder engagement and feedback, such as face-to-face meetings, paper-based surveys and brainstorming sessions are unsustainable and ineffective. Digital solutions mainly focus on engagement or feedback, never both – until now.
The Vocaleyes social enterprise was constituted as Vocaleyes Digital Democracy Ltd on 14th April 2014 and converted to Vocaleyes Democracy C.I.C. on 18th July 2019 Limited by Guarantee, Community Interest Company. This decision was made to support our social purpose and remove barriers to working with communities.
Make a positive change for the people and places you care about
As a Community Interest Company, our mission is to inspire and build a better tomorrow. We’ve built a platform to help you do this.
We encourage ideas and are committed to positively supporting change. We care about our impact on climate and nature and we collaborate openly to encourage inclusion, wellbeing and community purpose.
This ethos is not just a way of life for us, but built into the foundations of our platform.
