What we do

The aim is to build a Peer Group that can best support digital practitioners in the region to build great digital services using the Local Government Digital Service Standard.

We have held 3 Peer Group meetings already and have had a number of guest speakers from Peer Group members sharing their Digital Transformation journeys including:

  • North Yorkshire CC
  • City of York Council
  • Rotherham MBC
  • North East Lincolnshire Council

and a guest speaker from Argyll & Bute Council.

Each meeting is well-attended and involves a high level of networking and problem-solving

The slides and problem solving outputs can be found at the following links:

How to get involved

The Peer Group meets quarterly. You can book your place on the next planned event when organised via our Eventbrite pages.

We’ve create a Slack channel which you can sign up to the Local Gov Digital Slack Team here with your gov.uk email address. Why not have your team host the next event? Or suggest a theme to focus on?
