We are More in Common UK

More in Common’s mission is to understand the forces driving us apart, to find common ground and help to bring people together to tackle our shared challenges. Our vision is to build a more united, inclusive, and resilient society where people believe that what they have in common is stronger than what divides them.

We carry out rigorous research on public opinion using a social psychology lens to understand people’s core values and beliefs. We partner with organisations, from academic policy units to creative collectives, to put that research into practice. Our initiatives are designed to foster a sense of unity, to counter divisions, and to address the causes of polarisation and social discord.
