An interactive community engagement platform that gives ordinary people a real voice

Hear from everyone, not just the most vocal

participatr is an interactive community engagement tool designed for the public, private and third sectors to consult, engage with and evidence the aspirations of ordinary people for the built environment.

Engage and excite ordinary people

participatr is interactive, exciting and designed to be easy-to-use for everyone. Feedback data is visualised real-time in interactive pie-charts and pinpointed on maps, building a sense that community input makes a difference.

Add an extra dimension to your feedback

participatr maps feedback according to your respondents' precise geographical location, building a feedback heat map. It can then be filtered by postcode or demographic group to spot opinion trends at a neighbourhood level.

Gain a deeper community understanding

participatr can filter feedback by age group or by response to a particular question. This helps you and your audience spot feedback trends among people in different demographic and opinion groups.

Complement other forms of engagement

participatr is designed to help your team manage the entire engagement process, with tools to feed in feedback and stakeholder insight captured offline, whether it be at events, meetings, on the doorstep or over the phone.

Give people freedom to roam

participatr is fully smartphone and tablet compatible, making it easy for your participants to get involved anywhere, at any time. What's more, this means your team can capture feedback and stakeholder insight on-the-go.

Maintain dialogue beyond the consultation

participatr is built for the project lifespan, not just the consultation. It integrates news updates, events, video and more, in addition to generating email blasts to thank participants, provide updates or ask for their support.

Measure your engagement campaign's success

participatr's analytics tools provide insight into what time of day people visit your website, their location and what type of device they are using, helping your team optimise their social media and on-the-ground campaign activity.

Make a watertight case to decision-makers

participatr's tools help you demonstrate consultation outcomes and opinion trends to those making decisions, such as local government, funding partners or politicians, transparently and without the need for spin.
