At Making All Voices Count, we’re looking for the best ideas that open up channels of communication between citizens and governments, and that promote transparency and good governance.

Some of the concepts we see are fully operational, making demonstrable impact, while others are just the seed of an idea. Some ideas come from established national and international non-profits and governments, and others from grassroots innovators or concerned individuals and citizens.

We want to see all ideas and innovators have a chance, so as well as committing funding to projects we are also able to offer more tangible support in the form of Fellows, who help with a range of challenges - from developing and running a social media campaign to creating a business model, building a website, or designing and coding a mobile app.

Fellows are likely to be career professionals with a proven track record in their field, and the Fellowship will give them a chance to share their skills and experience with a Making All Voices Count funded partner who have identified a specific skills gap, or need, within their organisation. Fellows will be placed within the funded partner organisation for up to six months, and have all travel and salary covered.
