The Local Digital movement 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, a shared ambition for the future of local public services.

The Local Digital team within the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) supports the Local Digital movement through our four key workstreams: the Local Digital Fund, events, training and cyber.
