Want to help hold power to account?

Today I am launching a new?Help Me Investigate?project called Help Me Investigate: Networks. And I need your help.

Help Me Investigate: Networks aims to provide help to anyone who wants to investigate public interest issues.

There are 3 ways you can help:

1. Join the network

One of the biggest problems when investigating public interest is being able to find people who can help. Perhaps you have worked in a particular sector? Or have studied the laws and regulations relating to it? Perhaps you have experience of writing FOI requests, or organising awareness-raising events?

If you have knowledge or experience that you'd be willing to pass on at some point, add yourself to the?private contact list.

2. Contribute to one of the site blogs

Help Me Investigate is hosting sites covering health, education and welfare. If you want to find out how to investigate – or are already investigating – issues related to any of these areas, please get in touch via paul@helpmeinvestigate.com or the blog comments, and the site editors will help you get stuck in.

3. Contribute to an investigation – or add a new one

If you want to contribute to one of the investigations taking place (not all of which are public), or want to investigate an area that isn't already covered by Help Me Investigate then let me know on paul@helpmeinvestigate.com and I will try to help you get started.

A post detailing how HMI:Networks will work will be coming later on this blog.
