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 email address. Why not have your team host the next event? Or suggest a theme to focus on?
