People working in government often ask us for examples of how others are running their public consultations/involvement activity online. (For all the ‘best practice’ guidance and training courses in the world, sometimes there’s no substitute for just seeing what other people actually do).

So, in case you’re in that boat, here’s a few interesting real-world examples, from our customers, that are live on the internet right now. (You can also take your pick from 12,500+ examples any time via our Aggregator.)
