Last Friday & Saturday PSDTF supported LocalGovDigital by organising and running the 10th LocalGovCamp which took place in Birmingham. The 2 day event saw 200+ LocalGov Digital Managers & Change Agents gather to share/discuss/collaborate around the technologies, working practices and changes in organisational culture culture around Local Gov Digital Transformation.
The difference about this LocalGovCamp was the the event was used to launch the LocalDigital Fund, a £7.5m pot of funding available to Local Government and partners to develop new approaches to using digital to deliver services with the ability to scale.
The attendees were addressed by Minister for Local Government, Rishi Sunak MP, in a specially recorded video message.
Also present at the event, was MHCLG’s Chief Digital Officer, Paul Maltby, who spent some time giving LocalGovCamp founder, Dave Briggs, a video interview in which he explained the Declaration & the Digital Fund.
