We help citizens to monitor the delivery of vital projects and services where they live - and to solve the problems they find.

Our Impact

In many parts of the world, essential services like education and health, as well as vital infrastructure, don't meet citizens' needs to the extent they must.

Citizens know all too well the frustration of crumbling roads and buildings, understaffed schools, and water sources with no water. Our goal is to provide citizens with practical ways of tackling these problems and actually getting results, in collaboration with the institutions that serve them.

We do this with an approach that incorporates community monitoring, social accountability, problem solving, and a technology tool and mobile app called DevelopmentCheck.

Founded in 2003, Integrity Action is a non-profit organisation based in the UK spanning the fields of international development, citizen feedback, transparency and accountability, and civic tech.
