As pressures on public service revenue budgets continue, cyber risks increase and the need to balance customer-centric service delivery with efficiency grows, acting upon the Local Digital Declaration to #FixThePlumbing becomes more urgent.

Four years on... how much of the plumbing really is 'fixed'?
Get in touch with our team
Our sister company, Socitm, discusses how much progress has actually been made towards fixing the plumbing as part of the Local Digital Declaration. And on reflection, do we need to do more to challenge ourselves to be more radical in our approach?
Local Digital Declaration
The Local Government Declaration is a collective ambition for local public services. The joint endeavour was initiated by the UK Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), the Government Digital Service (GDS), and a collection of local authorities and sector bodies from across the UK.
We are proud to be supporting the Local Government Declaration, supporting our customers to help #FixThePlumbing in their own organisations.
