Empowering Young People for a Strong Society – our new strategic plan

The Citizenship Foundation has published our new 10-year Strategic Plan, to help children and young people become active, engaged, motivated members of democratic society.  At a time when society feels increasingly polarised, and people’s faith in democracy has been shaken, this is not ‘business as usual’ for us.  The Plan sets out ambitious goals to reach more your people than ever.  We believe every young person has a right to the knowledge, skills and confidence to play their part as full citizens of this country.

Citizenship Foundation Strategic Plan 2017-2027

Tom Franklin, Chief Executive, commented

The Citizenship Foundation has been helping young people become active citizens for more than a quarter of a century.  But our work is more urgent today than ever before.  We help young people understand issues like fake news, elections, the rule of law, and campaigning – so they can take their full place in society.


We’re really excited about our new strategy.  And we’re very grateful for the support of funders, businesses, volunteers and supporters.

The Citizenship Foundation is currently reviewing our name – and other ways we present ourselves – to see if it still works for us (and for others!)  We wondered if you could help us by completing a short questionnaire.  It’ll enable you to comment on our existing name and some alternatives – it should only take a few minutes.  Click here to fill in the questionnaire.
