Event description

Description

Many local councils all across the UK are increasing their design, user research, and content design capability. Some council have hired designers and user researchers, and many design-minded people are improving the public services provided by Local Authorities. So far, they are rarely as well connected as designers in central government departments. Local #govdesign Day is about to change that!

Local #govdesign Day is for welcoming the designers and design-minded public servants working in local governments to the cross-government user-centred design community. It sheds a light on the great work happening on a local level and introduces people to each other and designers in central government. It is a day for, with and by designers in local government.

The event is supported by Birmingham City Council and jointly organised by the Government Digital Service’s National and UCD Communities teams. The event is free of charge and open to anyone working in and for local government as well as people working in central government, arm’s-length bodies and the NHS.

For more information about the event, read the blog post on the Design in Government blog: User-centred design in local government: where it’s at
