News and announcements from 10 Downing Street on the new, single government website.

GOV.UK is the new home of corporate and policy information from the Prime Minister’s Office – as well as historical information about Downing Street and the Prime Ministers who have lived there.

The Prime Minister’s Office is one of the last central government organisations to move onto the new GOV.UK platform, which brings together services and information from across government.

It joins 24 ministerial departments whose content has been moved to GOV.UK between November 2012 and April 2013.

Topics and policies

The Inside Government section of GOV.UK has been designed to make government information easier to find. For the first time, the public can find out what’s happening inside government all in one place, and in a clear, consistent and transparent format.

Information from multiple government departments is now grouped by topics. For example, people can read about how policies from across Whitehall are contributing to national security or economic growth.

Departments and agencies on GOV.UK are publishing policies according to the outcome the government is trying to achieve. For each policy, there is a list of all related announcements, consultations and publications in one list, called ‘latest’.

Award-winning GOV.UK

GOV.UK recently won the Design Museum’s Design of the Year Award. The jury praised the site for its well thought out, understated design, which makes the user experience simpler, clearer and faster.

Prime Minister David Cameron said:

For the first time, people can find out what’s happening inside government, all in one place, and in a clear and consistent format. It is just another example of Britain’s world class design talent standing out on the global stage; in this case helping to enhance the modern relationship between the public and government.
