We are a team of Australians who care about the future of Australian democracy. We are also a not-for-profit charity and public company registered with ACNC.
We are frustrated by how hard it can be to get the right questions raised and answered in Australia’s parliaments. We want our MP’s to represent us better, instead of the various interest groups that consume their time. We also want to inform the parliament’s powerful processes, such as the Senate estimates, to make sure the most effective questions are raised and answered.
Ask Parliament is an app we’ve built to make parliamentary democracy and participation easier for everyone. We aim to open a clear channel of communication between parliamentarians and the electorate so they can more effectively represent the people.
We want to strengthen accountability of public authorities and elected representatives to the public.
A free and open democracy for the benefit of all Australians.
To support all Australians to engage and participate in democratic processes.
Our goal is to make political participation accessible to everyone. We are driven by our values of engagement, openness, privacy, and inclusiveness.
