The new home on the web for the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office

GOV.UK is the new place for corporate, news and policy information from the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


The Deputy Prime Minister’s Office has moved its corporate, news and policy content onto the GOV.UK website - the new single home for all government services and information.

Information from the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office and the Prime Minister’s Office today joined that of all central government departments whose content moved to GOV.UK between November 2012 and April 2013.

The Inside Government section on GOV.UK makes it simpler, clearer and faster to find out:

  • how government works
  • what the government is doing
  • how you can get involved

New web address

All web addresses are being redirected, so you don’t need to update your bookmarks, but you might want to make a note of this new address:

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

You’ll notice that the new website looks very different from the ones it has replaced. The look is one obvious difference, but many of the other significant changes are less visible.


You can now see information from multiple government departments grouped by topics. For example, you can see how policies from the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office and other departments are contributing to economic growth and community and society.

Clear policies

Departments and agencies that have moved to GOV.UK are publishing their policies according to the outcome the government is trying to achieve. For example:

For each policy, you can see a list of all the related announcements, consultations and publications in one list, called ‘latest’. The latest tab makes it easy for you to track what is happening on the policies that interest you.
