If you have an idea for an initiative that you'd like to see supported by Wikimedia UK, then please submit a proposal below. This is a fairy easy process, and just involves describing the idea, the resources (funding/volunteers/...) it will need, and a list of people interested in participating. Once submitted, a proposal is openly discussed here, and when there is sufficient support it is discussed at a board meeting.

To proposal a new project, please add a brief descriptive name after "Initiatives/Proposals/" in the box below, then click "Create page". You'll then be presented with a template that guides you through the process. Once you've saved the proposal, please add a link to it in the table below.

If you have any problems submitting a proposal, please contact us.
