Evidence Matters
Contrary to the views of some commentators, that the public only responds to emotional rhetoric and political soundbites, we’ve seen a very different picture, of a public that cares about evidence. People have been telling us why evidence matters to them, on subjects as diverse as air pollution, childcare, the safety of military personnel and cause of death investigations.

For fifteen years, we’ve been fighting against the attitude that evidence is for the in-crowd, where frank discussion of evidence is kept behind closed doors, in private clubs and senior common rooms. For evidence to play a healthy role in society, we must insist that authorities discuss it openly.

On Tuesday 1st November together with individuals and organisations from a huge range of sectors across the UK, we’re going to Parliament to tell parliamentarians, ministers and officials that evidence matters to the public in so many different ways.

Would you add your voice to our growing list with a comment about why it matters to you that politicians take evidence seriously?
