What is the Local Digital movement?
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, a shared ambition for the future of local public services. It is supported by funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), to provide digital training to signatories and to fund collaborative, council-led projects.
How we support the Local Digital movement
We support the Local Digital movement by:
- helping organisations to implement the principles of the Local Digital Declaration
- supporting local authorities to build reusable tools, guides and standards
- building digital capability within local government
- encouraging collaboration within the Local Digital community.
We do this through our four key workstreams: the Local Digital Fund, events, training and Cyber.
