Frequently asked questions
If you have a question about Centre you can find answers to the questions we are asked most often below:
Centre is fully transparent. This means all of our donors, the amount they donate, commissions, all contracts we sign and our spending is public. We also ensure funded research or sponsorships are clearly labelled. This transparency is vital if our research is to be trusted and for our role in the political system is to be clearly understood. You can see all of this information on our "Transparency" page which is linked in our footer.
Our website this has been designed by members of the Centre team, primarily by our Director. Our Digital Campaign Team and our Director continue to keep our website up to date.
Our original website was designed by Ryan Frendo. You can see it on the Wayback Machine between September 2020 and November 2020.
Our second website was designed by Torrin Wilkins. It included elements of the original website but was designed using the standard WordPress builder. You can see it on the Wayback Machine between January 7th 2021 and November 3rd 2020.
Our updated website uses Wordpress and the Elementor Website Builder plugin. You can see it on the Wayback Machine starting from November 15th 2022.
Our videos are filmed by members of our team including our Head of Photography who all own their own camera kits.
You can visit our complaints and safeguarding hub linked under the contact section on the menu. This allows you to file a complaint, report a minor issue, report a safeguarding concern or to to raise a whistleblowing issue. You can also find out more about the team which deals with these concerns and more information about how we deal with concerns.
Being a think tank means we research new or existing policy ideas. Research involves looking into policies, finding out whether they will work and then supporting or opposing them.
Pressure groups try to influence both what the public think and government policy. We do this through campaigns, petitions and events.
Why are you both a think tank and a pressure group?
Centre started as a company in 2020. Before then we were called New Liberals.
Whilst Centre has supporters and partners from a range of political parties we are an independent organisation. This means we also aren't aligned and we don't support any political party.
Centre operates as a Private Limited Company. This is due to our activities as a campaign group and a pressure group. It means we are free to campaign for policies and to support candidates in elections.
If you go to our contact page then you can get in touch with us there. We will then send over some more information about volunteering with us. We also have our "volunteer" page which contains all of our opportunities to get involved with Centre.
