In this blog post, Local Government Minister Rishi Sunak announces the launch of the Local Digital Fund and outlines the application process. The fund will be used to enable local councils to work together on a digital project, as well as to enhance the digital capability of local teams.
We will be using the Local Digital Fund to build the capability of leaders delivering digital services, through digital leadership training. Local Digital Advisor Gavin Beckett outlines the user research the team have been doing to test their proposition, and what they learnt.
We have launched a new event sharing service! Designed to aid collaboration between digital organisers across local government and help local government colleagues find events of interest. Find out more about the service and how it works.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Declaration sign up service. It has been designed to allow local authorities and organisations working with local government to sign up to the Local Digital Declaration. To sign up, make a commitment in line with the principles of the Declaration. Learn more about signing up your organisation.
The Local Digital Team hosted the first #AskRishi event on Slack, giving people the chance to put their questions to Local Government Minister Rishi Sunak MP. Discover the highlights from the conversation.
