You Decide

You Decide is a free digital tool that makes it easier for people to have a say in the decisions that affect them.

You can use the app to:

Share your thoughts and preferences about neighbourhood decisions and help to shape the future of your area.
Set up your own polls and share your ideas with others – is there something you want to change?
Give feedback to the Council and local organisations.

What does the future hold for your community? You decide: the choice is yours!

There are four main categories within the app:

Council Polls: share your views about issues that affect the whole of Bristol
Council Surveys: tell the Council what you think in their latest surveys
People’s Ideas: submit your own ideas for change and vote on suggestions put forward by others
Neighbourhood Choices: have your say in decisions affecting your community, from practical matters to funding decisions (you will only be able to do this for decisions affecting your Neighbourhood Partnership area)

Submissions made through the app will be taken into account by the relevant decision-making bodies and considered alongside feedback obtained through other means (such as questionnaires and consultation events).

We currently have a working Android prototype. We want to build partnerships with local people, organisations and funders to develop the app into a multi platform functioning app that supports people to have a say in the decisions affecting their communities.

If your organisation or group would like to use the app, or you’d be interested in working with KWMC to develop it, please contact Jen on 0117 903 0444 or


Knowle West residents and young people using You Decide

YouDecide is one of five apps developed for the city through the IES Cities project. You can download all of them from the IES Cities Player on GooglePlay store using any Android device. IES Cities ran from 2013-2016, working in four cities in Italy, Spain and the UK to explore how people can use digital technologies and apps to identify and address issues in their area. You Decide was trialled in 2015-2016.
