Local Digital is a growing community of organisations working together with a shared vision to deliver more user-centred, cost-effective local public services through open, collaborative and reusable work.

The community was drawn together around the Local Digital Declaration, co-published in 2018, and is supported by funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to provide training to all signatories and funding to selected collaborative projects.
