Welcome to Our Democratic Heritage

Our Democratic Heritage is a recently formed charity that aims to make the history of democracy part of the British cultural mainstream. ODH works alongside other efforts to reverse this trend, with the intention of strengthening the popular celebration of those who did so much to create the freedoms we enjoy today.

Our Democratic Heritage is a vehicle for encouraging communication between like-minded organisations and individuals. Our goal is to create a hub of activity, bringing together people and institutions to raise awareness in today's society of the long-standing tradition of democratic ideals in the UK.
