About OurDemocracy

Democracy is for everyone and we hope that this website will make it easier for you to understand what your elected politicians are doing in the States Assembly.

Remember that activity in the States Assembly is only one aspect of what politicians do and politicians must devote time and attention to many other important activities including constituency casework, representation on various committees and scrutiny panels, and engagement in public and community events.

All of the data on this website is available publicly. The States Assembly information is licensed under the Open States Assembly Licence – Jersey v1.0. We have just organized it in a way that is easier and simpler to access.

This website was inspired by a similar website in the UK (theyworkforyou.com) developed by a non-profit organization called mySociety. The Jersey version of this website was developed by the second 2017 cohort of students enrolled in a six-month coding programme run by Digital Jersey.

Ongoing management and development of the site is being provided through a collaboration amongst the Jersey Policy Forum, Digital Jersey and the States Greffe. Technical support for the site is provided by the Jersey Policy Forum and Codentia.
