Digital Experts Programme

We put in place the LGA Digital Experts funding programme in 2014/15 to help more councils benefit from the digital approaches already delivered elsewhere.

This is the list of the successful councils with a brief outline of their funded projects. We will work with these councils to ensure they share their learning through case studies, open days and conferences so we will keep you informed as dates get confirmed.

Digital Transformation programme

The Digital Transformation Programme was set up is being run to help fund councils to develop digital solutions to support their wider work on national programmes of transformation including, the integration of health and social care, Troubled Families, Welfare Reform and Public Health.

The aim is to develop digital tools and solutions that can be reused by other councils and support the wider work to transform local public services. Below is a list of the successful councils and a brief summary of their projects. We will capture the Councils learning through case studies' and share them at future events.

Digital Channel Shift Programme

As councils face the twin challenges of decreasing funding and increasing demand, they have to find different ways of using technology to provide access and deliver services more effectively, as well as enable their staff to work in new ways, increasing productivity and reducing operational costs.

To support councils do this work, the LGA has funded 23 projects involving 28 councils, to use digital tools and solutions for their work on channel shift. For example, redesigning specific services so available on different devices so easier for citizens and businesses to self-serve.
