This declaration affirms our collective ambition for local public services in the internet age, and our commitments to realising it. It commits us working on a new scale to:
- design services that best meet the needs of citizens
- challenge the technology market to offer the flexible tools and services we need
- protect citizens’ privacy and security
- deliver better value for money
This joint endeavour was initiated by the UK Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), the Government Digital Service (GDS), and a collection of local authorities and sector bodies from across the UK.
We invite all local authorities and the organisations we collaborate with to join us
by signing the Declaration and committing to deliver a first action from which we can all benefit.
