We are a politically neutral and not for profit campaign run by volunteers.

We’ve been going for over a year and a half now and we’ve all donated our time for free to what we believe is a key issue facing democracy, the fact that political advertising has almost no rules.

After this disinformation election our campaign has never been more important. We can't let this type of campaigning become the norm.

The Coalition for Reform in Political Advertising is (believe it or not) almost the only organisation pressing for rules to prevent misleading claims and lies in political ads.

Please donate here if you like what we've been doing during the election. We are looking for some very modest funding to take the campaign into 2020. We want this to capitalise on the awareness we've raised over the last few weeks. For example, our campaign was featured on BBC Breakfast, Politics Live, 5 Live and the News Channel in the last week of the UK election campaign.

There is a solution to this as we outline in our review, and it isn’t that complicated. However, for us to continue our work we need some funding.

This won’t be used to pay anyone’s salary. Several immediate things we’d like to use the funds for is to send a copy of our review to every current and newly elected MP. Also for some further research into the public’s attitudes towards political advertising and to pay for our website maintenance and hosting. These simple asks will be used to help our lobbying in the New Year.

If you’d like any more information about our campaign before donating please email Alex at alex(dot)tait(at)reformpoliticaladvertising(dot)org.

      We hold businesses to account, we now need to do the same in our political advertising. It's not just possible, it's necessary.
