About Us

The Constitution Society is an independent educational foundation founded in 2009. 

We promote public understanding of the UK constitution and work to encourage informed debate between legislators, academics and the public about proposals for constitutional change.

We advocate the maintenance of basic constitutional standards and a considered approach to constitutional change. Where such change is required, we argue for the careful preparation of legislation, with broad consultation and adequate time for scrutiny and debate. 

We monitor current constitutional developments, and assess them against the core principles identified by the distinguished members of the United Kingdom Constitution Monitoring Group.  

The Constitution Society is a registered charity. We are entirely independent, with no connection to any political party, and we do not take any money from government. We rely for our funding on individual donations and grants from educational trusts and foundations.

We support other constitution-focused organisations and initiatives, including the United Kingdom Constitution Monitoring Group and the UK Constitutional Law Association.
